Programme note - This work is a response to Handel’s The People Walked in Darkness where the melodic line has been elongated, embellished and juxtaposed against itself. From this we hear indeterminate washes of sound within which moments of unison and harmony break through which ties to a central concept of the Messiah – that from darkness comes light.

Commissioned by the Handel House Museum Trust and premiered by the Pegasus Choir, Grosvenor Chapel, London December 13th 2009
