Two works for the organ that are both composed around plainsong textures and melodies, together as a unified pair of performance pieces.
Reliqui Domum Meum was first performed in Orkney, 1996 by Heather Rendell, andwascomposed for the memorial service of organist Richard Hughes of Kirkwall, Orkney.Veni Creator Spiritus was first performed at Rochester Cathedral in 2002.
The overall mood of this sensitive commemorativepiece,first performed in April 1996 at Kirkwall East Church, on the Orkney mainland, by Heather Rendall, is quite sombre - if anything, even more simple and restrained than that of Veni Creator Spiritus. Thehushed,carol-like central section - sounding as if the adapted chorale were being heard like some distant memory or from afar - is of touching simplicity.
