The Flower

author of text

‘Early in 2007 I set four stanzas of George Herbert’s poem “The Flower” at the suggestion of Judy Rees, who had invited a number of composers to contribute new hymn-tune settings of Herbert’s poetry, to be published by the George Herbert in Bemerton Group in association with the RSCM. I made further use of the melody in the second movement of Ponticelli, which I was working on at the time. The slightly more elaborate version recorded here was arranged especially for Ex Cathedra.’
