A setting of the famous hymn for Eastertide It is a thing most wonderful, for unaccompanied SATB, in which the tune always appears in one part or another all the way through.

A tenor solo kicks off, before the choir bring in the second verse at a slightly faster tempo. Verses 3 & 4 are more introspective, with an ebb and flow that follows the natural line of the phrases.

Some passionate moments and some reflective sections make this short piece a joy to sing.

Herongate is dedicated to Anthony Cartmell.
