The five-part anthem Omnes de Saba venient is a vibrant Epiphany motet, with playful musical gestures and figures appearing at various points in the text. At the words ‘de Saba venient’ rhythmic movement is introduced followed by a rising quaver figure which moves up through the texture at the words ‘et laudem Domino’. The ‘Alleluia’ introduces a new rising and falling figure.
