Composer's Notes:

After a majestic introduction, the women's and men's voices are featured separately.  Four part writing follows, including an (optionally) unaccompanied section.  A contrasting developmental verse, "Oh Spirit breathe a gentler way…" gives way to the concluding verse for unison with descanting sopranos.

Proclaim the Love That Breaks Down Walls was a winning commission of the Northern Texas-Northern Louisiana ELCA Prize celebrating the visionary-missional leadership of Bishop Kevin S. Kanous, 2000-2016, as part of the 2017 LutheranArts Martin Luther Hymn Prize honoring the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Text by Christine Kallman.
