Description

for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied This is a deeply compelling setting of the familiar text. The piece commences with a series of contemplative exchanges between the upper and lower voices; the ensuing, unexpected changes of key and texture are potently effective, and typical of Jackson's compositional style. This very fine motet is suitable for the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary and for concert purposes.show more

Review quote

There are strategically placed frissons of key-change in his Ave Maria, and corresponding, but subtle, changes of tempo too, as a consequence of which the motet moves persuasively towards the goal of its last five pages, an almost Poulencian melismatic rhapsody for two solo sopranos soaring above the choir. * Peter Dale, Choir & Organ Sept 06 *show more

About Gabriel Jackson

Gabriel Jackson was born in Bermuda. After three years as a chorister at Canterbury Cathedral he studied composition at the Royal College of Music. Jackson's music has been commissioned, performed and broadcast worldwide, and his works have been presented at many festivals including Aldeburgh, Cheltenham, Spitalfields, and the BBC Proms. His liturgical pieces are in the repertoires of many of Britain's cathedral and collegiate choirs, and his choral works in general have been recorded by some of the world's leading choirs including Polyphony, The Vasari Singers, The State Choir of Latvia, and Merton College Choir, Oxford. He is currently the Associate Composer to the BBC Singers, who have premiered and broadcast a number of recent commissions.
