Hope of the Hopeless: SSAATTBB & Organ

Research output: Non-textual formComposition


Commissioned by St Jude's United Church as part of their sesquicentennial celebrations. The sonnet which the piece sets was also especially commissioned from Phoebe Wynne.

The setting took J.S.B. Monsell's hymn O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! as its borrowed material as Monsell was the vicar of Egham Parish church and was instrumental in the building of St Jude's Englefield Green.

This is the second setting of the sonnet, the first being A Peace All Too Fair.
