The last invocation

First line:
At the last, tenderly
composer
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.
