This nine-movement work for soprano, choir, and chamber orchestra follows the biblical arc from that first garden in the opening of the book of Genesis to the ultimate and longed for garden described at the end of the Revelation to St. John. Except for the central setting of Psalm 23, each movement brings together varied and sometimes divergent biblical passages, illustrating and amplifying the journey from the life, glory and peace of the created order, through the lament of the exiled wanderers, to the Good Shepherd who is our peace, and his suffering to accomplish that peace, and to our final promised dwelling place in the Garden of Joy yet to come.
