David Bednall: Pure Living Light

Books | SATB, Organ Accompaniment, Choral

Composer: David Bednall
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

David Bednall's Pure Living Light for SATB and Organ.

This radiant anthem explores the theme of light, with luminescent harmonies, a virtuosic Organ part, and soaring Vocal lines. The text is by Dr Marcus Tomalin, after Dante's Paradiso, and Bednall's word painting is highly effective. A compelling climax as the singers tell of the 'pure living light shining' falls away to a powerful unaccompanied moment, before the organ picks up a motif and develops it in a majestic interlude. This is a highly rewarding anthem for performer and audience alike.

Pure Living Light was recorded by The Epiphoni Consort on the CD David Bednall: Sudden Light (Delphian, DCD34189).
