Written for the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in Chichester, for a small group of singers, too few to be able to manage SATB. This expressive piece is ideal for choirs where the singers are few in number or not confident enough to sing in harmony.

The unison voices stay within a range of a 6th, which can be reached by any voice part. They are guided to their notes by the organ, whose colourful harmonies owe much to Messiaen.
