Description

for SATB (with divisions) and soprano saxophone Setting the original Latin text of the hymn better known as 'Hark! a thrilling voice is sounding', Jackson creates an Advent piece of beautiful stillness. The largely homophonic choral parts, with a soloist supplying a gentle contrapuntal line, are contrasted with light and graceful interjections from the saxophone. The result is a quietly moving piece ideally suited for a reflective moment during an Advent service.show more

Review quote

After a dramatic statement, the work is attractively lyric and clearly by Jackson, with an appealing intertwining of saxophone and choir. * www.planethugill.com, September 2016 * The saxophone part is mainly heard independently from the voices in a free style that contrasts with Jackson's familiar homophonic choral writing, though there are occasional motivic overlaps between the two sonorities. * Geoffrey Webber, Choir & Organ, May 2016 *show more
