Benedicite (8 mins)
Written for Wimbledon Chamber Choir's birthday concert in 2016, which included Tallis's Spem in Alium with a large number of guest singers, this piece is laid out for a central choir, which does most of the work, plus two ripieno choirs. The ripieno parts had to be learnt on very little rehearsal, and so were kept very simple. The recording was made at that concert on 16 April 2016 by the augmented Wimbledon Chamber Choir and Catherine Boxall (organ) conducted by the composer.
