SATB choir a cappella
Composed by Andrew Fletcher. Modern, Choral. Octavo. Duration circa 2 minutes, each. Edition Peters #EP68054. Published by Edition Peters (PE.P68054).

Item Number: PE.P68054

ISBN M-3007-4966-2. Texts: from hymns by St. Thomas Aquinas.

Piano reductions are included but are meant for rehearsal purposes only.

The texts for both pieces are taken from hymns by St. Thomas Aquinas and therefore perfectly suited to the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament in the Christian service. The rhythms are straightforward but the expanded harmonic language and the multiple non-diatonic key changes used in both pieces require a moderately experienced choir. 'Tantum Ergo' was commissioned for the 1999 May Festival at St. Stephen's (Bournemouth, England). 'O Salutaris' was written for Ian Harrison the organist and choir master of St. Stephen's on the occasion of his 50th birthday.
