Jolliffe, Edmund: I will lay me down in peace (PRINTED VERSION)
This PRINTED version is available to purchase as a regular sheet music title for delivery by post.
For parish choirs Edmund Jolliffe offers a fine post-communion anthem in a much-loved idiom of Anglican liturgical music. The resources are straightforward: SATB choir without divisions, and piano. The effects however are subtle. The music builds steadily through broadly phrased paragraphs that balance individual lines within the choral ensemble, in a landscape of gently shifting yet unexpected harmonic effects. Immediately appealing, this music will reach out to a range of listeners, both regular worshippers and those for whom occasional church attendance is an opportunity for quiet reflection in words and music.
