for SATB with divisions, unaccompanied This is a sensitive and uplifting setting of a text by Geraldine Atkinson, who tragically died aged 24. The reflective nature of the music makes it particularly suitable for memorials. This piece is suitable for either amateur and professional choirs.
Gabriel Jackson (b.1962)
" am the voice of the wind was commissioned by a member of the Vasari Singers in memory of a daughter who died cruelly young. The composer's ability to find a musical idea apposite to the subject is in evidence here, in this case a fluttering repeated figure in the sopranos that accompanies much of the piece. Textures are clean and pierced through with light, in line with the composer's intention to write a work 'as celebratory as it is memorialising'." - William Hedley, International Record Review, October 2012
