Programme Notes
The text for this work for unaccompanied double SATB chorus is by Bishop J Cosin, based on Veni Creator Spiritus. It was commissioned by the 1984 Southern Cathedrals Festival and first performed at Winchester Cathedral on 26 July of that year. The music is based on a pentatonic chord throughout, and rhythmically reflects the floating rhythms of plainchant. Jonathan Harvey
