Adoro te devote

2015; S solo, SSST quartet, SSATB unaccompanied; composed for Westminster Cathedral Choir in memory of the victims of the Nepalese earthquake of April 2015
author of text

Setting part of a Eucharistic hymn text by Saint Thomas Aquinas, Adoro te devote (2015) can be used in a liturgical or concert setting. The presence of expressive polyphony, flowing melismatic lines and optional soaring soprano solos suggests affinities with Allegri’s Miserere. Dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Nepalese earthquake in April 2015, Adoro te devote was written for Westminster Cathedral Choir.
