Gabriel Jackson: To Morning
Gabriel Jackson: To Morning (SSATB a capella). OUP
Gabriel Jackson, winner of the 2003 British Composer Award for liturgical music, provides this short composition (just forty bars) as part of OUP's 'New Horizons' series. The series has been introduced to 'showcase the wealth of exciting, innovative and occasionally challenging choral music' and this is a fine example. The music is well crafted, using a text by William Blake, with a climactic final section in eight parts. A recording is available on Hyperion CDA67708.
