Drop, drop slow tears was written for The Arcadian Singers of Oxford University for a recording in 2002. The work is set in a simple three-verse format, beginning with upper voices whose melting harmonies are intended to convey dropping tears. The second verse, sung by lower voices, is more urgent but subsiding to a serene final verse. Here, all eight voice parts sing in rich, almost claustrophobic harmonies, ending on a blurred final chord that fades gently, avoiding a firm conclusion.

The Novello New Choral Series is an inspiring selection of new works from a range of contemporary composers, offering pieces for all types of choirs, including sacred and secular works from simple, four-part settings to more expansive, yet accessible, repertoire in an exciting variety of styles. This collection is perfect for choirs looking to broaden their repertoire and explore some of the best new music around.

James Davy (b.1980) has worked with many choirs in churches and cathedrals around the UK, most recently as Assistant Director of Music at Blackburn Cathedral. He is a composer with a real affinity for the voice and has developed a keen ear for effective timbres, harmony and word-setting. He has had several works broadcast on radio and television and has written for choirs around the UK and USA. In 2010 he won the Choir & Organ Composition Competition.
