Gratias tibi

premiered in 2000
author of text

Gratias tibi was premièred in a BBC broadcast performance by the Choir of New College, Oxford directed by Edward Higginbottom in June 2000. This motet, for divided choir, takes for its text the final two sentences of St Augustine’s Confessions (book I). Written in the final years of the fourth century, the Confessions reflect on St Augustine’s own life and, more importantly, the autobiographical evolution of thought. The music explores St Augustine’s dual emotions of praise and recollection by using two constantly shifting modalities which only unify in their evaporation at the very end.
