More > are. This illustrated account of one branch of the Pitts family from the 1500s and of some of their relations also sheds light on aspects of our common social and military background which is unlikely to be found in the general history books. The Christian faith has been a constant factor.< Less

A setting for SATB(div.) of George Herbert's Love bade me welcome, commissioned by Edward Higginbottom to mark his retirement from New College, Oxford. "...from the moment I started working on... More > it, it was clear in my mind that this piece existed – complete, perfect, and (to me at least) unutterably beautiful and heart-rending. A murmur, a hue, a shadow, an outline, a pang – these are the beginnings of creativity that I’m aware of, but then I’m generally not aware of the real genesis of a piece of music, only sometimes – often they’re as impenetrable as forgotten dreams. When I do know I’m thinking about a (new) piece, I sometimes feel sure that I’m seeing or feeling it rather than hearing it.

Paperback: $9.81
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The words of the Seven Letters from the Book of Revelation are over 1900 years old, yet speak with a remarkably contemporary voice. The Laodiceans, the last of the seven churches addressed, think... More > they are rich in worldly terms, but do not realize that spiritually they are “wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked”. Each of these letters is declaimed by a solo – at times virtuosic – voice (originally written for individual members of the ensemble TONUS PEREGRINUS and recorded on Hyperion CDA67507), and each letter ends with the urgent refrain: “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches”. The cover painting is by David Jenks: 'Finale'.< Less
