Deus est caritas

author of text
1 John 4: 16

Deus est caritas was commissioned in 2017 for the choir of Peterborough Cathedral by the lay clerk Marcus Carney, in tribute to his late parents. 'Marcus asked for ‘profound joy’,' relates Panufnik. 'I hope I’ve managed to convey this with bright and vivacious harmonies and church peals.'
