Malcolm Archer: A Hymn For St Cecilia

Books | SATB, Organ Accompaniment

Composer: Malcolm Archer
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Malcolm Archer's A Hymn For St Cecilia for SATB choir (with divisions) and Organ.

Set to Ursula Vaughan Williams' celebrated paean to the patron saint of music, this work is by turns joyous and reflective. Rich harmonies, shifting tonalities, and expressive melodies combine to evoke the changing moods explored within the text. The poignant Andante section midway through the piece, sung by a solo Soprano, is a pivotal moment; it gives way to increasingly jubilant and powerful writing that brings the work to an ecstatic conclusion.
