Product details

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.
