I am creating a polyphonic setting of a text for S.A.T.B. a cappella choir.
The original English text is
"The Past provides; we give thanks.
The present lives; we give thanks.
The future has hope; we give thanks."
The Latin translation that I am working with is,
"In praeteritis cavetur; gratias agimus.
In vitae nunc; gratias agimus.
Spes in futuro; gratias agimus."
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
