Programme Notes
O Jesu Nomen Dulce was written for a remarkable man of Winchester Cathedral, Dean Michael Stancliffe. His intense austerity was mingled with a sweetness of mystical origin; the name of Jesus is singled out for special cherishing... O Jesus, sweet name, wondrous name, name that imparts strength, What indeed is more delightful to sing? What is more pleasing to hear? What is sweeter to think on? than Jesus, the son of God. O name of Jesus, true food of the soul, honey in my mouth, melody in my ear, joy in my heart, And thus, sweetest Jesus, I shall carry they name for ever on my lips. Jonathan Harvey
