Iustus ut palma

author of text
Psalm 92: 13-4; 84: 1-2, 4-5, 12

Colin Mawby began his musical education as a chorister at Westminster Cathedral under George Malcolm. Mawby rose through the ranks of juvenile and adult assistant, eventually serving as Master of Music from 1961 to 1976. Mawby has written some uniquely effective music for the choir, and the macaronic anthem Iustus ut palma combines its English and Latin texts with the same alacrity as that with which Mawby fuses the textures of choir, baritone soloist, and organ.

Colin Mawby démarra sa formation musicale comme choriste à la cathédrale de Westminster, sous la direction de George Malcolm, avant de devenir assistant, à l’adolescence puis à l’âge adulte. Master of Music de 1961 à 1976, il composa pour le chœur des pièces particulièrement impressionnantes et l’anthem macaronique Iustus ut palma marie paroles anglaises et latines avec alacrité, celle-là même avec laquelle sont fusionnées les textures du chœur, du soliste baryton et de l’orgue.

Colin Mawby begann seine musikalische Ausbildung als Chorknabe an der Westminster Cathedral unter George Malcolm. Mawby machte dort Karriere, zunächst als jugendlicher und dann erwachsener Assistent und war schließlich von 1961 bis 1976 als Master of Music tätig. Mawby hat verschiedene, in einzigartiger Weise wirksame Werke für den Chor geschrieben und in dem makkaronischen Anthem Iustus ut palma wird der englische und lateinische Text mit demselben Eifer kombiniert, wie die Klangstränge des Chors, des Baritonsolisten und der Orgel miteinander verflochten werden.
