   Guy Forbes gave us ''O Nata Lux'' many years ago and we have patiently waited for its sequel. Now we have it, a stunning setting of ''There Is No Rose'' that delivers exactly what we hoped for. It is a beautiful melody draped in warm harmonic fabric that is so very rich and satisfying. For advanced high school, college and community choirs as well as fine church choirs. Medium to Difficult.
