Review quote

Gabriel Jackson has been steadily building a reputation since the early '90s as one of the UK's most accomplished writers of choral music . . . and the supple rhythms opf th brief but satisfying anthem O fear the Lord could trip the unwary or complacent. Jackson's assimilation of a range of influences and choral experience has resulted in a highly personal and rewarding idiom that can offer something to choirs of pretty much any ability level. It is good to
see OUP making his work more widely available. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer, Feb 2004 * This writing is accessible and imaginative. * Christopher Field, Music Teacher July 2004 * The frequent time signature changes and rhythmic complexities of O fear the Lord mask a simple, flowing effect. Happy the choir which learns with its ears rather than its eyes here and is not distracted by notation and inner counting. * Rosemary Broadbent Church Music Quarterly September 05 *
