Additional Information

This is the live recording of the premiere of my piece 'inshallah', which was commissioned by the St Andrews' Voices Festival 2016 for the festival service.

The text is taken from translations and transliterations of Arabic blessings and prayers, to create a piece which could be performed in a church service alongside Purcell's Te Deum. The instrumentation is the same (minus continuo): choir, string quartet, and two Baroque trumpets. The music explores consonance and dissonance, hamronically and rhythmically, in an attempt to draw contemporary parallelisms with Baroque and pre-Baroque forms of worship music.
