1) "The mountains will distill sweetness"
2) "Rejoice and tremble with joy."
These biblical verses, rich in meaning and poetry, are a call to hope. They are commented on by music, without any Gregorian reference.
This is a text from the liturgy of the First Sunday of Advent: in 1978, it was precisely Sunday, December 3, the date of the creation.
Here is the full text:
1) "The mountains will give out sweetness, and milk and honey will flow from the hills, alleluia".
2) "Rejoice, daughters of Zion, and tremble with joy, daughters of Jerusalem, alleluia".
