This short setting of Rorate Coeli a text associated with the Matins service at Advent was written in 1983 and first performed by the Choir of Trinity College Cambridge, as part of the Advent Carol Service held every year in Trinity College Chapel. Arranged for mixed voice choir, SATB. Duration 2 minutes.
I heard this during an Advent Carol Service on BBC Radio 3, from St John's College Cambridge, I believe. It is a beautiful setting of the Advent Prose plainsong for 4 part mixed voice choir, dividing to eight parts at times.
I hope to be able to perform it next year with a Chamber Choir that I sing with (The Anselm Singers, cond. John Barnard). Anonymous

The piece itself is nice: it's based entirely on the traditional Advent Prose, with the bass carrying the melody throughout, and would be accessible to a competent church choir. Anonymous
