Description

for SATB (with divisions) and organ Commissioned and first performed by the choir of Liverpool Cathedral, this anthem is ideal for use during the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul. The choral lines move between sonorous homophonic writing and vibrant imitative passages, and are underpinned by a repeated quaver motif in the organ. Combining a sense of joy with moments of reflection, this anthem will particularly appeal to choirs looking to expand their choral repertoire.show more

Review quote

A sense of radiance is conveyed throughout by the clean, high tessitura vocal writing and filigree organ accompaniment. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer, August 2011 * The title's golden light infuses the score from beginning to end. The luminous text (attributed to Boethius's wife) makes the piece appropriate for any number of radiant liturgical occasions. * Jeremy Summerly, Choir & Organ November 2011 *show more
