This motet for unaccompanied SATB choir was commissioned for the 500th anniversary of King's College, Cambridge. This is a setting in Greek of an Orthodox prayer to Christ as Son and Word, God and Man, risen and saving. The prayer is led by a solo tenor and sung mostly by the men, with the upper voices entering only for an appeal to Wisdom (sofia) and the final alleluia.It was first performed in 1991 in King's College Chapel, by the choir of King's College conducted by Stephen Cleobury.
