First line:
May God be gracious to us
composer
commissioned by James Lowry for Felsted School on the occasion of their 450th anniversary celebration service in St Paul’s Cathedral, 20 March 2014
author of text
Psalm 67: 1-3

 
These words were suggested to me by Felsted School, and I decided to write a gently unfolding melody that grows to a large central organ climax and then a big octatonic finish which would resound long and loud around St Paul’s Cathedral. The piece received its second performance in front of Queen Elizabeth II when she visited Felsted School later that same year.
