I saw the Lord

composer
author of text
Isaiah 6: 1-4
translator of text

 
It is often said that I saw the Lord was written with the acoustics of St Paul's in mind. It is scored for double choir with an independent organ part. The music's drama is achieved by the simple, largely homophonic texture, and the interplay of the two chorus parts with that of the organ. Stainer breaks into an imitative texture at the words 'and the house was filled with smoke' and again in the final verse section, which is reminiscent of a Victorian part-song.
