Description
Text: Psalm 95 (Book of Common Prayer: Morning Prayer) Publisher: Chester Music Difficulty level: 1-2 This work was not published in Britten's lifetime but it was obviously intended as a companion work to the Jubilate in C as itwas written in the same year. It wasnt performed until 1983 when it was given its premiere in Westminster Abbey under Simon Preston. The choir sings chant-like phrases almost in the manner of Anglican chant. The organ joins theend of a phrase and modulates where it will from where the choir picks up and travels to a further place. The phrases are varied dynamically but the greatest colour is given via the medium of key change.It is a curiously effectivepiece. Time is almost suspended, and once the listener has got over the surprise at its means and has settled into focusing on the words, the music takes on a life of its own. The gentle Gloria is especially effective. Duration: 6minutes Paul Spicer, Lichfield, 2011
