Composed in response to the tragic 2011 death of Chinese toddler Wang Yue, O vos omnes (with text from Lamentations 1:12) is a call to compassion and awareness. It features a fugue on the text "attendite et videte" that unfolds gradually and culminates in an anguished climax.
All proceeds from the sale of O vos omnes will be donated to the Sunbeam Children's Foundation, a Chinese charity dedicated to improving the lives of the poorest children in Guangdong Province.
