Gabriel Jackson

Lux Mortuorum

Vocal score

Forces or Category: SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied

New Horizons

for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied
This piece stems from an ongoing partnership between the composer and the writer Richard George Elliott. The profound sentiments expressed in Elliot's poem about the firmament are evoked by Jackson's use of colourful, shimmering textures and an underlying sense of spaciousness. An impressive concert work, this is complex but utterly compelling choral writing.
