Iustorum animae

author of text
Offertory at Mass on The Feast of All Saints; Wisdom 3: 1-3

The beauty of Matthew Martin’s Iustorum animae—written in memory of a friend of the composer’s who took his own life having learnt of his diagnosis of terminal cancer—lies in its simplicity and restraint. Whilst originally written for just the ‘men’s voices’ of the choir, assumed to be alto, tenor and bass, the inclusion of the ladies of the choir singing low in their register gives this piece an even greater sense of depth of sorrow.
