Sol Justitiae

author of text

James Barmby was Principal of Hatfield Hall (now Hatfield College), University of Durham, from 1859 to 1876. The text of the Latin hymn which he wrote for use in the College Chapel was rediscovered in 2009, and is a meditation on the journey from darkness into light. It was set to music at the request of Professor Tim Burt, Master of Hatfield, by Alec Roth during his stay as Composer in Residence at the College, Easter Term 2009. The first performance was given by the College Chapel Choir directed by Alexander Crawford at the Eve of Hatfield Day Service, Durham Cathedral, 15 June 2009.
