O REX GLORIAE
By Charles Wood
for SATB unaccompanied
Entitled 'Grace Anthem for Ascension Day' in the Gonville and Caius College Library, this makes a very useful addition to the repertory for Ascension Day - either as an introit or as an anthem. The text is from the Collect for the Sunday after Ascension. The piece starts in triple time and contrasts chordal writing with imitative textures before moving into common time for the final Alleluia.
