I know that my redeemer liveth

author of text
Job 19: 25-6; 1 Corinthians 15: 20

Cecilia McDowall’s I know that my redeemer liveth sets a composite Biblical text familiar from its use in Handel’s Messiah: her work was commissioned in 2009, the 250th anniversary of Handel’s death, to be performed alongside Brahms’ A German Requiem. The text is a revelatory vision of our bodily resurrection on the Day of Judgement. From a tranquil opening, the music builds to a radiant climax (highlighted by a sudden shift to a new harmonic realm) at the words ‘and in my flesh shall I see God’. The ensuing triple-time section incorporates a memorable lullaby-like portrayal of ‘them that sleep’.
