James MacMillan: Emitte Lucem Tuam

Books | SATB

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Composer: James MacMillan
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

A setting of verses from Psalm 42 (43) with Gloria Patri, commissioned by the Schola Cantorum of The Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, London, to mark the School’s centenary in 2014 (Latin text): ‘Send out your light and your truth; these themselves led me forth, and they brought me to your holy mountain and to your holy place …’ Although composed for a school choir this is a significant addition to the corpus of Latin motets for mature performers by this composer. Predominantly homophonic in texture, there is a range of moods, tempi and dynamics over the work’s 4-minute duration, exemplifying the youthful affirmation of the text.
