Cecilia McDowall's Light Eternal for SSATB Choir, Organ and optional Tubular Bells.
Light Eternal brings together the liturgical text for Remembrance, Lux Aeterna, and the evocative poetry of Denise Levertov. Commissioned as part of a trilogy, Light Eternal has a haunting and exotic quality, the music beautifully illustrating the sense of the texts.
The anthem was first performed on Armistice Day 2012 by the Oakham Chapel School Choir and conducted by Peter Davis. Suitable for Remembrance and other occasions of solemn commemoration.
