My prayer

composer
2000
author of text
Psalm 102

 
I wrote My prayer for Jon Washburn and his elegant professional group the Vancouver Chamber Choir in 2000. Jon had an idea to do a concert with his choir as part of Festival Vancouver based entirely on the iconic piece by Henry Purcell, Hear my prayer. There was already a brilliant piece based on the Purcell by the Swedish composer Sven-David Sandstrom, and, using this piece as the basis of the idea of the concert he commissioned three other versions, by two Canadian composers and me. Whereas the Sandstrom piece deconstructs the Purcell, mine eventually comes back to it, but the 5-in-a-bar pulse brings an altered and extended climax to the work.
