for SATB and organ This powerful anthem was first performed at St Paul's Cathedral, and is dedicated to victims of torture and those working for their release. With expansive melodies which echo between the vocal lines and rich, sometimes astringent, harmonies, Archer's setting of Psalm 22 is poignant yet ultimately hopeful.
Malcolm Archer (b.1952)
"Archer, typically, explores both major and minor tonality to good effect and a central section for solo soprano is truly beautiful." - The Organ, Autumn 2008
