About the piece

“Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing;
Only God is changeless.
Patience obtains all things.
One who has God wants nothing;
God alone is enough.”

A short, but moderately challenging setting appropriate for a small or large adult choir. Appropriate for use as a church anthem.

St. Teresa of Avila (1515–1582) was a Spanish Carmelite nun, mystic, and Doctor of the Church, most famous for her classic spiritual writings, The Interior Castle and The Way of Perfection. She also wrote the famous poem, Nada Te Turbe, which has come to be referred to as St. Teresa’s Bookmark.
