Duration: 5.5′
Oxford University Press
First performance 22 November, 2016 | Chapel of Royal Holloway University, Surrey, UK | Rupert Gough, conductor

Reflective and reverential, the influence of plainchant is particularly apparent in the soprano solo, and McDowall intersperses effective imitative passages amidst homophonic writing with rich harmonies.
