      Big impact dramatic finish doesn't appear to beyond an average choir to perform although quite high a couple of times for sops/ trebles I liked the change in rhythm at the end - not yet performed but intend to have it learned for Dec this year.
      There are no bad bits to this piece,although it requires a second listening to to get it I found, after that it just clicked. I t is slightly querky but in a very positive way.
