Sheet Music: Score
Ubi Caritas : for SATB choir / Paul Stanhope.
by Paul Stanhope (2012)
Ubi Caritas, commissioned by Graeme Morton and the
Brisbane Chamber Choir, was written with both liturgical and
concert performances in mind, and for this reason I sought a text
that could work both in a specific church-based context and also
strive for more universal themes. I essentially view it as an
exhortation for unity through shared love and respect.
Although there are small references to a plainchant melody (more famously used by Maurice Duruflé in his own Ubi Caritas) the musical style is largely homophonic, although with considerable interplay between voices. Dance-like verses and more contemplative sections are punctuated by a refrain which gradually begins to dissolve into free echo sections as the piece progresses.
