Work Overview

A dancing, swaying setting of the joyful Psalm 100 from the King James Bible gradually takes on attributes of traditional ritual chant seeking absorption into the unfathomable mystery of life. I think the Lord who is praised here (in all the lands) may be seen as a universal symbol of wholeness: of an all-embracing love capable of binding together and harmonising everything in the universe. The text is progressively splintered, with some elements playfully subjected
to varied repetition, and others stretched out to suggest pools of quiet contemplation. The opening lines, with their exhortation to sing, recur as a refrain.

Singing the Love
is intended as a celebration of the whole of life, and in particular the love between Ray Turner and Jennifer Seabrook. Jennifer generously funded the commission for the Choir of King's College, Cambridge and Musica Viva Australia, in honour and celebration of Ray's 75th birthday.
