Benedictus is one of the movements in Corlis's Missa Pax.

"The audience reaction was instantaneous. Leaping to their feet - the collective excitement communicated something extraordinary . . ."

". . . not afraid of melodic beauty rendered over a natural sense of progression. Just when you think he might veer towards schmaltz, however, he takes the harmony on an unexpected turn, teasing the ear and extending the tension. This gives the composer's work a wonderful sense of accessibility, while also being challenging and maintaining interest. There is also an unabashed feeling of emotional authenticity that proves irresistible to the listener."
