Abstract

This solo work for organ was commissioned by Christopher Batchelor as part of the 2013 London Festival of Contemporary Church Music, with funds from the PRS for Music Foundation. The work is in memory of Jonathan Harvey who I assisted as amaneunsis on his final choral composition in summer 2012, ‘Plainsongs for Peace and Light’. My work refers to a couple of Harvey pieces – quoting a plainsong in 'Plainsongs for Peace and Light' and a chord pattern from 'The Angels' (choral work from 1995).
The work was first performed by Michael Waldron on 15 April 2013 in St Pancras Church, London, as part of choral evensong, and broadcast live on BBC Radio 3. It was awarded a British Composers Award in 2014.
