The viola solo Canto was written as a set piece for the Lionel Tertis Viola Competition in 2019. Taking as inspiration Tertis’s Jewish background in London’s East End, Panufnik selected as its base an Ashkenazi Jewish Cantorial chant 'Y’hi rotzon' ('May it be Thy will'), an invocation for the new month’s blessing. 'The title evolved out of my admiration for the gorgeously warm ‘singing’ tone of the viola', Panufnik says. It was only after she had chosen the name that she discovered that Tertis’s father had been a cantor at the Princess Street Synagogue in Stepney.
