All wisdom cometh from the Lord

Ecclesiasticus 1: 1-5

 
All wisdom cometh from the Lord, with text from the book of Ecclesiasticus, was commissioned by the University of St Andrews in celebration of its 600th anniversary. The influence of the Celtic melody is at the heart of this work, and the opening soprano solo employs characteristic intervallic leaps and rhythmic snaps to great effect. A chorale-like passage, richly-scored for eight voices forms a middle section, before a return to the textures of the opening—wordless accompaniment underscoring a free, folk-like melody.
