The video is one of four newly written choral pieces which are sung by the cast during The Devils.

Musical director Benjamin Thiele-Long says: "Choral music gives an opportunity, like no other, to express an incredibly diverse range of emotions in a way that connects viscerally with the listener, rather than simply something they just hear. When it came to writing the music for The Devils, I wanted have four interlinked pieces that would carry the audience and the cast through the story and convey the initial peace and subsequent anguish and building tension of the plot. Influenced by the work of Morten Lauridsen, Eriks Ensenvalds and the late John Tavener, the pieces use close harmony to create an ethereal atmosphere and establish the liturgy as part of the story."
