Song for St. Therese

My latest piece has been wrapped up and sent to its commissioner, Devon County Junior Choir. Written for a July evensong in Exeter Cathedral which coincides with the 2012 Majesty Flower Festival, I was drawn to the idea of nature as a reflection of God’s love and a metaphor for His power. Bringing passages from across the Old Testament together with the words of St. Therese of Lisieux, the “Little Flower of Jesus”, I explored this theme through folk-inspired modalities.

It is written for SSA with keyboard accompaniment, intended for junior choir but equally suitable for an all-female chorus. You can see a sample of the score in my Portfolio. Catch the first performance at evensong in Exeter Cathedral on Saturday 7th July 2012.
