O QUAM GLORIOSUM
By Gabriel Jackson
for SATB and organ
Written for the 20th Anniversary of Norwich Cathedral Girls' Choir, this setting of the well-known All Saints Day text juxtaposes flowing melodic lines in the sopranos with rich homophonic passages, each bringing the text to the fore. The organ plays a prominent role, providing gentle undulating accompaniment, as well as fanfare-like exclamations.
