A Sacred Madrigal for Unaccompanied Double Choir
Commissioned by The Chapter House Choir, conductor Stephen Williams, for performance in the Chapter House of York Minster on 14 November 2009 at a concert to honour the 70th birthday of Andrew Carter, Founder-Director of The Chapter House Choir.
"The new work, Consolation ... looks like a sober meditation on eternity. Walker's double-choir score is anything but: a fervent prayer, laced with echoes of plainsong, turns positively ecstatic, as it embraces divine love with extreme optimism." (Martin Dreyer, York Press)
