This is the second piece in order of composition, written in 2017 for Trinity College Choir. Park’s Justorum animae embodies an old technique made new: imitative polyphony, where the same melody, with some variation, is passed around from voice to voice in constant interplay. In this case, the melodic line is eventually transformed from the slightly uneasy form in which we hear it at the opening to a beatific tranquillity, as the souls of the righteous attain everlasting peace after a journey through travail.
