For 6S 6A 6T 6B unaccompanied. This expansive piece requiring 24 singers sets an anonymous 16th-century text of supplication to St Cecilia. From the cascading imitation of its opening to the monolithic triads of its close, it remains spellbinding and invokes a powerful sense of the divine. Inspired by the great motets of the Eton Choir Book, this is seriously beautiful music with particular appeal for committed choirs.
