The piano in Let Us Love is not here merely to accompany and should be allowed to come to the fore.  A lilting melody is introduced against which the independent choral parts call for love to pervade all that we do.  A defiant middle section proclaiming that ‘no fear be known to us’ creates cohesion and contrast.  In essence, the piano writing creates the feeling of a dance – singers must be aware of this throughout so that their rhythms reinforce and interact with those of the piano, creating an overall atmosphere of joy and contentment.

Let us love
As we are loved:
Let us love.

Let love
Be complete
In us:
Let no fear
Be known
To us.

As we are loved
Let us love.
