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”.

A millennial anthem commissioned for James O'Donnell & the Choir of Westminster Cathedral. Like BCAD (written the same year for the Swingle Singers), this motet is in two halves separated by a... More > pause, or possibly even by other music or events in a service or recital. It takes as its starting-point the biblical concept of God's relationship with time and eternity - "with the Lord a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day" - and incorporates a further patchwork of texts that refer both to Christ's first coming as a babe in Bethlehem two thousand years ago, and to His promised second coming at the end of the age. The first half of the motet is slow, the second a fast exploration of the same musical material. First performed at Westminster Cathedral on 17 & 21 December 2000, conducted by Martin Baker; duration: c.8'. A recording by TONUS PEREGRINUS directed by the composer is available on the album Alpha and Omega (Hyperion CDA67668).< Less

Glenn Gould: "I always said the most fascinating beautiful little piece in all of music is a hymn by Orlando Gibbons, by the name Thus Angels Sang. I couldn’t count the times I’ve... More > let these bars wander through my mind, or how often I’ve played them on the piano..." Gibbons’ exquisite tunes and rock-solid basslines for the first English hymnbook, Hymnes and Songs of the Church (published by George Wither with his hymn-texts in 1623), were written to be sung and played both at home and in church. In this practical and adventurous collection for choirs of all sizes and abilities (as on the acclaimed TONUS PEREGRINUS recording on Naxos 8.557681), Gibbons' music has been realized by Antony Pitts and Alexander L’Estrange in a variety of styles, interleaved with new English hymns by themselves (including 'There is a green hill') and two more Pitts brothers - James and John, and arranged in eight sequences following the Church’s liturgical year, each capped with an Amen.
