O nata lux de lumine

composer
author of text
Hymn at Lauds on the Feast of the Transfiguration

 
I originally wrote O nata lux for our regular services at Pembroke; I was looking to include music by female composers in every service, but found there was an obstacle in my path when it came to music written for just tenors and basses. We were singing a men’s voices compline, and so I decided to write a piece that would fill that gap, which I then rearranged for the entire Choir for this recording. The piece starts and ends with a single note, a beam that expands into a warm glow for the second statement of the opening sentence where it is given a chorale-esque treatment.
