Description

for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied This piece stems from an ongoing partnership between the composer and the writer Richard George Elliott. The profound sentiments expressed in Elliot's poem about the firmament are evoked by Jackson's use of colourful, shimmering textures and an underlying sense of spaciousness. An impressive concert work, this is complex but utterly compelling choral writing.show more

Review quote

Lux mortuorum invokes light in the most powerful terms at the opening, and then explores the space, colour, and movement of each individual phrase, seeking to illuminate the complex modern poem at every point. * Rosemary Broadbent, Church Music Quarterly, December 07 *show more
