Ecce ancilla Domini

    Here's a new piece of mine, just in time for the feast of the Annunciation. The text is "Ecce ancilla Domini; fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum". The typesetting is very much in draft mode, but otherwise the music itself is mostly done. I can upload a record using piano at some point as well. Any feedback welcome, on any topic - voice-leading, text placement, harmony, etc.

    If you can get past my annoying breathing on this record, here's a piano playthrough.

    I am trying to decide if the tenor part on the third- and second-last measure should read

    G# - F double # - E#

    instead of how it is currently written, which is:

    G# - G natural - F natural.

    I feel the second version may be easier to read for tenors but less consistent with the suggested key-harmony at that moment.

    Given the Phrygian motion, I would use the second version.
