Review quote

The Canticle of Brother Sun has a really arresting opening, before embarking on its lively, rhythmical course. These words of St Francis of Assisi have long needed a convincing setting, and this pieces certainly fills the bill. It is not really difficult either, though the organist needs to be nimble. * CMQ April 97 * ... a lively and rhythmic setting * Choir and Organ Nov 97 * A spirited and dramatic setting by Grayston Ives of words by St Francis, The Canticle of Brother Sun, combines straightforward vocal lines and an exciting organ part to great effect. * Choir Schools Today 1998 *
