This unaccompanied SATB setting of a Roman Breviary hymn combines both the Latin text and English translation. The traditional plainsong melody forms the basis for the work, but is set in a more contemporary style. As with many of my compositions, the exploration of colour and harmony plays an important role in this work.

I hope that choirs enjoy singing this piece and that they find it an interesting addition to the Compline repertoire.
