Professor Orr has written three symphonies, three operas, and has received important commissions from Peter Pears and Dame Janet Baker. He has also made a significant contribution to Anglican church music. The anthem They that put their trust in the Lord was composed in memory of those members of St John's College, Cambridge, who lost their lives in the Second World War. The mood of the work is traditional in outlook, although the key structure is unusual, which lends an original quality to the profound calm of the work.
