Brief blurb

I took a year or so to write the Credo of my unaccompanied Mass (not that that was the only composing I did during that period). When at last the Credo was done to my satisfaction, and even though I half-fancied that I might write an instrumental piece as a change-up — I found myself reflecting anew on how little text there is for the Agnus Dei. Thus I composed this in short order, a bit less than a week, I believe. The speed is partly accounted for in a reference here and there to passages from the Credo and from the Kyrie.
