Hinshaw Music, 2012

One of Dan Forrest’s best-known a cappella pieces, this setting of Ruth’s plea from Scripture has been performed around the world. The video above is the University of St. Thomas Singers (Fidel Calalang conducting) performing in the Florence (Italy) International Choir Festival.

TEXT (from Ruth 1):

Entreat me not to leave you,
nor to turn back from following after you.
For where you go, I will go
And where you live, I will live
Your people shall be my people
And your God, my God
Where you die, I will die
And there will I be buried.
The Lord do so to me, and more also,
If ought but death part you and me.
