Welcoming Gareth Treseder

We’re absolutely delighted to welcome composer Gareth Treseder to the Stainer & Bell Choral Now catalogue with his latest work for double SATB chorus and organ Come and let us return unto the Lord.

The work is a dramatic setting for double chorus of a striking passage from Hosea, very much conceived with Parry’s I was glad in mind. Both scores are in three clearly defined sections: firstly triumphant, then contemplative, then returning to the majestic glory of their opening moments. In addition – and the drama here is explicit – each setting allocates individual roles to members of the decani and cantoris, calling for God’s people to turn back to him. READ MORE…

Our Choral Ambassador Angus Smith caught up with Gareth to ask him about the work and what inspired him to write the piece.
