These four motets were composed in the fall of 1921 while Copland was studying with Nadia Boulanger in Paris. The four motets have remained unpublished until now. Writing to Copland about them in 1924, Boulanger tells the composer that 'those motets sound in the voices in a stunning manner.'
Scoring: SATB a cappella
