Beautifully crafted, and beautifully sung
Posted by Chris Williams on 21 November, 2013
What a great piece! I heard it on the Music Show and wanted to know more. What pleases me most is that the initial attractiveness reaps rewards upon closer listening. The structural coherence combines elegantly with clear, intelligent text setting. I am particularly struck by the moment where the initial musical idea returns, in a completely different register with the “cum sanctis...” (around 2:16 in the video). Beautifully crafted, and beautifully sung.
P.S. Should the fourth notes in the alto part at bar 55 be a B flat? It sounds to me like that is what is being sung, but the flat seems to be missing from the score.
