Urbi et orbi – Bénédiction papale, S184


Urbi et orbi remained unpublished until 1978. An intonation—the Pope’s blessing—alternates with a hymn melody in a piece which becomes very florid before returning to a declamatory coda punctuated by a short litany, set on a single stave as if to be sung by priest and people.
