Ecce Puer is a composition by John Tavener for Unaccompanied SATBB Choir. A setting of one of James Joyce's poems, a full performance lasts around 2 and a half minutes.
'John Tavener's setting of the James Joyce poem Ecce Puer was composed in 2010 and has just been released for the first time. It is another of his brief homophonic compositions based on the juxtaposition of a small number of unrelated chords, some dissonant and some diatonic, though pride of place is given to a (non-functional) dominant 9th chord.' - Geoffrey Webber, Choir & Organ Magazine
