"At the start of Belgian composer Rudi Tas' haunting setting of the Miserere, a solo cello rises out of a vocal cluster. The music gradually becomes more intense; the voices plead for mercy. The work ends with a fading vocal cluster that reveals the solo cello's high E." - G. Schirmer, Inc.

Miserere nobis / Have mercy on us

Deus noster miserere / God is our mercy

Exaudi nos / Answer us / Hear us
