This wonderfully melodic setting of the canticles - coloured by delicious jazz harmonies - was written by Wayne Marshall, the celebrated international organ virtuoso, in 1982 for the choristers of St George's Chapel, Windsor, where he was organ scholar. As those choirs who have already come across this piece will testify, it is a work well worth discovering. 

Faber New Choral Works introduces a wealth of new or recently written choral music to choirs in search of fresh repertoire. The series draws in a rich diversity of living composers and includes both lighter and more challenging contemporary works, offering a thrilling array of varied styles.
