Review quote

Will Todd's My Lord has come is an intense and, in some ways, demanding piece with second altos repeatedly singing bottom F sharps (in one place optionally bottom E). Yet it is also highly singable, with harmonies that are easy to hear in advance and well-shaped vocal lines. The words are by the composer, describing the shepherds called by love and sages searching for love, but as a fortissimo climax 'his love will hold me' because, in the words of the title that are also a refrain, 'My Lord has come.'
