The last invocation
First line:
At the last, tenderly
23 September 1918
author of text

The last invocation, with its ostinato chordal accompaniment, shows some similarities to Gustav Holst’s approach to the same subject and has the same sense of dignity; only the final climax shows rather more romanticism than Holst would have allowed himself.

from notes by Michael Pilkington 1997
