John Rutter - Oxford University Press
Click to review
John's expressive commentary on perilous times is derived from the words of Solomon and the often-quoted passage in the book of Ecclesiastes. This work opens serenely, with almost mournful harmonic textures based on open fifths, and introduces an ascending melodic motif that seems to evoke the upward prayers of humanity. As the composition develops through "a time of war, and a time of peace," John brings the melodic and harmonic ideas together to linger in an earnest cry for peace and rest. Profound and reflective, this is a substantive choral work that is accessible and deeply moving.
