for SATB (with divisions) Translated as 'Shining with light', Luce coruscas sets a hymn for Vespers on the Feast of the Assumption, followed by the poem 'Herself a Rose' by Christina Rossetti. Jackson employs his signature harmonies and descriptive working of the text within an expansive polyphony to create a large-scale expressive anthem to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
