I SAY THAT WE ARE WOUND WITH MERCY
for SATB and organ
Setting a section from The Blessed Virgin Compared to the Air we Breathe by Gerard Manley Hopkins, this Marian piece opens with an extended soprano passage, underpinned by soft yet characterful organ writing. Several hallmarks of Jackson's style are evident, including soaring, melismatic soprano lines, sonorous harmonies, and repeated organ motifs. The result is a captivating and emotive work for church and concert use.
