Scapulis suis
George Malcolm was an accomplished harpsichordist as well as a conductor and choir trainer, and consequently his knowledge of early music was extensive. In his luxuriantly textured setting of Scapulis suis for use at Mass on the First Sunday of Lent, Malcolm drew heavily on the style of late-Renaissance Continental polyphony, and seasoned it with twentieth-century nostalgic modality. This type of modality is also present in the organ hamonizations of plainchant that are a feature of the day-to-day liturgical work in Westminster Cathedral.
