for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied
Commissioned by King's College, Cambridge for the 2015 Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, The Flight sets a newly written poem by George Szirtes on the subject of the flight to Bethlehem. The harmonies are rich and ethereal, and a peaceful refrain implores 'May those who travel Find shelter on the flight: May Bethlehem Give rest to them.'
