for SATB unaccompanied This luminescent setting of 'O lux beata Trinitas' (ascribed to St Ambrose) uses a variety of textures and vocal techniques to reflect the joy expressed in the text - from simple homophony to improvisatory techniques and free metre. The piece culminates with a short declamatory tenor solo, echoed by a solo soprano, before a peaceful extended 'Amen'.show more

Review quote

As with her previous choral output, Kerry Andrew's refreshing and inventive setting of O lux beata Trinitas centres on the exploration of texture, colour, light and atmosphere . . . The simplicity of much of the melodic writing should place the vocal parts within the ability range of most medium-level choirs. The real challenge will be with respect to ensemble, particularly in some of the more innnovative aleatoric sections; the last section of the piece calls for individual entries of given material in order to create cascade effects. A little perilous maybe, but the sort of engaging performance technique that students are bound to find involving and exciting. * Tom Wiggall, Music Teacher, 1 December 07 * . . . the closing Gloria, beautifully spare and hushed, contrasts marvellously with the rich aleatoric nimbus around the clamactic word "lumen". * Peter Dale, Choir & Organ, January 08 *show more
