Gabriel Jackson (born in Bermuda in 1962) is best known for his substantial output of choral music, although more recently he has become equally preoccupied with instrumental works. He composed Creator of the stars of night in 2000. A setting of an anonymous 7th-century text, the work begins in contemplative mood. The middle section (with organ) is more dramatic and incisive, before a return to the opening mood. Commissioned by Matthew Owens for the Choir of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral Edinburgh, the piece was premiered in December 2000.
