"After many playings, I am more convinced that a trebles (S/A) performance would work better than mixed voices. That said, this is a gorgeous, sensitive setting of a quintessential Eastertide text." --AAM Journal, February 2002

Shifting meters and a flexible tempo impart a chantlike feel to this work. The two equal voice parts sing in dialogue for most of the piece, against a background of rich harmonies in the organ part. A prizewinner in the 2001 anthem composition contest of the Anglican Musicians Foundation.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God.
Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is Love.
In this is love, not that we loved God but that God loved us
and sent his Son that sins might be forgiven.

Beloved, since God loved us so much,
we ought also to love one another.
For if we love one another, God abides in us,
and God's love will be perfected in us.

--Canticle N (I John 4:7-8, 10-11, 12b)
