Review quote

Generally subdued in character but with an impressive central climax, this is a most moving setting of the familiar text. Choir Schools Today, 1998 Ave verum corpus has a haunting, gently pulsating melody with rhythmic and harmonic interest and effective canon entries in the middle section. Choir and Organ, Nov 97 An anthem of some stature, which makes something new of this well-worn text. With its shifting chromaticism and its mystical incandescence, this is a Communion anthem which should attract the attention of the most modest of choirs, for the writing is never difficult. CMQ April 97
