for SATB and organ
A setting of typically deceptive simplicity: understated but poignant harmonies allow the colourful imagery of Flecker's poem (The Golden Journey to Samarkand) to make its full impact on the listener's imagination.

Review quote

Full marks to Howard Skempton for choosing some sublime English poetry to set . . . There is opportunity here to show off good ensemble singing with well-balanced chords and expressive use of the words. * Music Teacher, March 99 * A more individual approach to modality is shown in Skempton's We who with songs, a setting of the poem by James Elroy Flecker. Skempton skilfully manipulates his triadic building blocks in a wholly original way, evoking the colours of Flecker's rich lyric poetry with a delicate ebb and flow, supported by a wash of gentle organ doubling. For the amateur choir seeking something different but not out of reach technically, this little gem would be a worthwhile
investment. * Choir & Organ, Nov 2000 *
