Most glorious Lord of life
|Publisher||CHURCH MUSIC SOCIETY|
This anthem, Francis Jackson's Op.160, was originally composed for the Edington Music Festival in 2009. The composer, aged 103, has now revised the score for its publication. His typically colourful harmonic style is combined with elegant vocal lines to produce a highly sympathetic rendering of Edmund Spencer’s Easter text. The work is prefaced by a short introduction to Jackson's anthems written by Simon Lindley. The front cover shows a sketch of Edington Priory Church, Wiltshire, and the back cover has a charming recent photograph of the composer taken by Robert Gower.
