THREE PRAYERS WITH A VISION OF LIGHT
By Gabriel Jackson
for SATB unaccompanied (with divisions)
Three prayers, with a vision of light sets early Christian texts by St Augustine of Hippo, Baldwin of Forde, and St Mary Magdalene de Pazzi alongside words by Estonian poet Doris Kareva. Each movement offers a change of mood, from the reflective 'Conversi ad Dominum' to the more urgent and pleading 'Aufer a me, Domine' and serene 'Veni, Sancte Spiritus', with 'He who lives in light' offering an expressive and contrasting central movement.
