for solo violin, upper-voice choir, with harp, and strings or organ This four-movement work is inspired by the idea of 'Jerusalem' both as a Holy City and a utopian ideal of heavenly peace and seraphic bliss. The composer has selected four biblical texts, in English and Latin, that express different aspects of this vision. The solo violin part is identical for both full and reduced instrumentations.

Review quote

Melodic writing in both the choir and solo violin show Rutter in top form. The orchestra consists of strings and harp with an alternative performance score for organ. Spanning twenty minutes and requiring a violinist of considerable skill, this work is not the most practical for many church situations. As an ancillary work in a concert, however, this major offering from one the church's most beloved composers is well worth consideration. * The Journal of the Assoc. of Anglican Musicians, May 2017 *
