Lorne Ys My Likinge is a work for Countertenor, Tenor and Piano, composed by Nico Muhly. It is a setting of the 19th Chester Mystery Play and was co-commissioned by Wigmore Hall with the support of André Hoffmann. A performance in its entirety lasts around 14 minutes.
“Created as a companion piece to Benjamin Britten's canticle, 'Abraham and Isaac,' the unearthly marriage of the countertenor and tenor voices is an exquisite combination too infrequently heard, and 'Lorne ys my likinge' is a marvelous setting for this unusual vocal combination.”–Journal of Singing
