Saying this Motet is based on the story of David and Johnathan, doesn't do it justice. Each word is drawn from the Bible itself, and arranged in a sacred holy song. It illustrates the love two men had for each other, and entered into a marriage covenant that was sanctioned by the Church and before God. We all have different beliefs, and some may say that the Bible is just the Myths and Legends of the Christians, however, this tale is backed by historical evidence in the form of Rabbinical Writings.

Response from the author:

Thank you, A! You are right to mention the rabbinical tradition in regards to books of the Hebrew bible. One that is rather well-known -- even making it into a Ben Stiller movie where he played a young Rabbi -- is the Jewish lesson to be learned from the Sodom and Gomorrah story. For them, they teach their children it's the perfect tale of the importance of being hospitable; God destroyed the cities of the plain because they were bad hosts to Lot and his family. So, that being the REAL lesson, how did the so-called Christians distort it to the degree they have...hmmmm...hate comes first and then the made-up stories to justify it, I guess...  

Thanks for the review. I'm glad I posted this again

A wonderful piece. David and Jonathan loved each other and married. The Book of Samuel tells us so. AC Benus has again brought our history and our truth to us.

Thank you, AC.
