This setting of words by the fourteenth-century English mystic Richard Rolle is the second work from The Fire of Love collection. The preceding ‘song’ speaks of a fire being kindled within the human soul and This is the Love is essentially a basking in the resultant heat which is the fulness and beauty of God’s love for mankind. The piano accompaniment must be regular in pulse and even in tone, and the choir should strive for pure vowels and seamless legato phrases.
The Sheet Music for the complete collection of The Fire of Love and the other standalone work This Fire is also available.
