Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Upheld By Stillness is a work for Unaccompanied SSSAATTBB Choir by composer Owain Park. A setting of the poem 'The World' by Kathleen Raine, the piece lasts around 6 and a half minutes.

Park describes the work as 'A reflection on the Sanctus and Benedictus from the Mass for five voices by William Byrd,' ...Some echoes of Byrd's music are incorporated in the piece, including two sections marked 'quasi Hosanna', but the composer focuses mainly on creating various effective bi-tonal chord clashes to generate an appropriate atmosphere for the cosmic theme of the poem, complete with star-like 'flickering'. - Geoffrey Webber, Choir & Organ Magazine
