James Whitbourn: There Is No Speech Or Language

Books | SATB

Publisher: Chester Music
Composer: James Whitbourn
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Contemporary British composer and conductor James Whitbourn, an award-winning creator of Choral music, film and television scores and works for the concert hall may be best known for his largest composition, the oratorio Annalies, which sets words from The Diary of Anne Frank. The text in this extract is not Anne Frank’s, but is drawn from Psalms and Lamentations. The stately chordal movement lends an appropriately solemn tone to a work that has understated power.
