This work is in memory of Jonathan Harvey who I assisted as amanuensis on his final choral composition in summer 2012, Plainsongs for Peace and Light. My work refers to a couple of Harvey pieces - quoting plainsong in Plainsongs for Peace and Light and a chord pattern from The Angels (choral work from 1995). - Ed Hughes
Commissioned by Christopher Batchelor as part of the 2013 London Festival of Contemporary Church Music, with funds from the PRS for Music Foundation. First performed and broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
