Description

for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied A setting of the Trinity Sunday text with achingly pure and fluid melodic lines featured throughout, imbuing the piece with characteristic clarity and luminosity. The change to A major for 'Trinitati in Unitate' is radiant, as is the final section, in which the choir divides into eight parts to proclaim the glory of the Trinity. Uplifting and powerful, this is rewarding music for committed choirs.show more

Review quote

Hymn to the Trinity begins with impressive, processional chords before a succession of more tender sections, distinctively scored. The fantastic Gloria which follows will be enough to make a whole building resound. * Rosemary Broadbent, Church Music Quarterly, December 07 *show more
