The Lord is my Light
Frances Allitsen wrote There is a land, a patriotic favourite at the time of the Boer War, which was sung by that formidable contralto—the one with the baritonal high notes—Dame Clara Butt. No less fervid a piece is Allitsen’s bravura setting of Psalm 27, dating from 1897. For me, the most remarkable moment in the work is the sudden musical shift to introspection at the words ‘Yet will I put my trust in Him’.

from notes by Robert White 1995
