SSATB and organ
Text: Elpis (wife of the philosopher Boethius)
Oxford University Press (2011)
Commissioned by The Friends of Liverpool Cathedral
First performance 27 June, 2010 | The Choir of Liverpool, Ian Tracy, organ and David Poulter, conductor | Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, UK
The choral lines move between sonorous homophonic writing and vibrant imitative passages, and are underpinned by a repeated quaver motif in the organ. Combining a sense of joy with moments of reflection, this anthem will particularly appeal to choirs looking to expand their choral repertoire.
