Gabriel Jackson: To The Field Of Stars

Books | Choral, SATB

Composer: Gabriel Jackson
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

A work on the subject of pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela, To The Field Of Stars features a variety of texts on the nature of travel and worship.

Underpinned by evocative Cello and Percussion lines, Jackson's strong Choral writing offers fragments of spoken lines and unexpected melodic twists, while a refrain recurs in a new musical guise after each movement. The piece reaches its climax in the sixth movement when quiet, freely repeated Choral notes ring out against Cello and Crotales, creating a musical 'field of stars'.

Mysterious and beautiful, this piece offers an immensely rewarding challenge for choirs.
