Jolliffe, Edmund: Lux aeterna


SATB unaccompanied (with divisions)

Edmund Jolliffe’s setting of the communion antiphon for the Roman Catholic Requiem Mass may be sung to equally powerful effect either liturgically, or as the focus of a collective expression of remembrance, or as a moving addition to any choral concert programme. From the opening revelation of eternal light the music moves steadily through hushed litanies and invocations to a resounding climax. A contemporary tonality of richly annotated chords illuminates these traditional words with a modern sound and sense. This is a piece that singers will enjoy for its discipline of sustained lines and beautifully balanced sonorities no less than for its eloquent statement of an eternal hope.
