This piece focuses on the radiant marital covenant of the bridegroom with Jesus Christ as expressed through the traditional Filipino candle dance, “pandanggo sa Ilaw,” translated to fandango with lights. As we present ourselves as the bride of Christ, without spot or blemish, we communally gather to pass down and celebrate our testimonies of pure love.
