Description

for SATB unaccompanied This is an exquisite piece, simple and homophonic in style, and with a luminescent beauty characteristic of many of Jackson's choral works. The piece begins quietly and reverently. There is a graceful soprano solo in the central section, after which the harmony opens out and richly blossoms in ecstatic praise of the Virgin Mary, before ending serenely as it began. Suitable for liturgical or concert use.show more

Review quote

Here, local strangeness of harmony bespeaks mystery and awe, and one appreciates and enjoys the pressure of meaning behind the marking 'urgent'. The frequent divisions yield lush textures. Conceived as a birthday present for the composer's mother, it comes over a a beautiful paean to motherhood. * Peter Dale, Choir & Organ Sept 06 *show more
