When to the temple Mary went

When to the temple Mary went offers another example of memories and tradition making their presence felt in Chilcott’s work: the words are the translation by the Victorian priest John Troutbeck of Johannes Eccard’s Maria wallt zum Heiligtum, a metrical setting of the presentation of Christ in the temple—the English translation still far more popular in Anglican churches than the German. The comparison with Eccard ends there, however; with its unsettling harmonies and restless temperament, this setting looks to troubled times ahead.
