A Litany '1st version'

composer
Easter 1916
author of text

 
Church music, although never central in Walton’s output, formed a small but valuable part of his life’s work. A Litany was in fact his first published composition, written at Oxford when the composer was only 16, and far more than a precocious trifle. Its craftsmanship is assured, its harmonic language already distinctively Waltonian, its sense of melancholy prophetic of the opening chorus of Belshazzar’s Feast, written more than ten years later.

from notes by Collegium Records 1997
