À la très chère, à la très belle
author of text

Dedicated to my brother-in-law and his bride on their wedding day, I chose a French text to reflect the bride’s dual nationality and this in turn suggested a lyrical, French style for composition. The choir on the wedding day was made up of many friends and relatives who dealt with the technical demands of the piece on a single rehearsal with great panache.
