for SSAA and piano This lively setting of the medieval 'Hymn to the Virgin' text has a sparkling piano accompaniment, syncopated rhythms, and real flair. It's particularly suitable for Advent or Christmas but can be sung throughout the year.
Bob Chilcott (b.1955)
"Not as demanding as its designation for SSAA suggests (since the four-part work is actually a simple two-part canon), this is an intriguing piece which harnesses some of the coruscating effects achieved by minimalist composers - repeated patterns of quavers and cross-rhythms - in an accompaniment which acts as a perfect foil to a regular procession of crotchet chords mainly built on sixths and thirds given out by the voices." - The Organ, November 07
