Vox populi, vox Dei.
Homo homini amicus est.
Ubi concordia ibi victoria.

The voice of the people is the voice of God.
Man is a friend to man.
Where there is unity, there is victory.

“Vox populi, vox Dei” opens with a fortissimo fanfare–like passage in B–flat major. The basses then introduce a marcato ostinato, followed by the tenors with a rhythmically contrasting theme. The women enter together with syncopated rhythms, then all voices unite at the text Ubi Concordia (Where there is unity). The music of the opening fanfare returns to conclude this high–energy work.
