Description

This work is suitable for tenor soloists and SATTBB unaccompanied. Robert Herrick's meditation on the true meaning of Lent is given a vigorous intensity in this setting by Richard Baker. The piece is full of driving rhythms, crunchy dissonances, and dramatic interplay between the voices. The impact of the climactic final section, in which the Lenten purpose is stated without compromise, is potently visceral. It includes a rewarding anthem for committed choirs.show more

Matthew Greenall, The Singer, April 06 This will take a solid church choir for effective performance, but its text is highly evocative for the season. The Diapason (USA) January 2006show more
