I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH
By Cecilia McDowall
for SSA(A)TB unaccompanied
This attractive motet was written for performance alongside Brahms's Requiem, following the precedent of Handel's famous setting of the same text being sung at the premiere of the Brahms in 1868. The gracefully sculpted music clothes the text with touching melodies, expressive harmonies and varied sonorities.
