Faith, Hope and Charity performance

My solo motet, Faith, Hope and Charity is being performed by Natalie Raybould (soprano) and Paul Ayres (Organ) on Tuesday 9th May at 1.15pm at St. Pancras Parish Church, Euston Road, London as part of the London Festival for Contemporary Church Music. The full programme for the recital, all contemporary pieces with sacred texts, is as follows:-

Timothy Salter - The Emissaries
Mark Levesley - Lord of Grace
Paul Ayres - Wedding Anthem
PerMagnus Lindborg - Set me as a seal upon your heart (Solomon Songs no 2)
John Hawkins - Gospel and Collect
Ian Coleman - O Adonai
Nicholas Ansdell-Evans - Hosanna to the Son of David
Robert Hugill - Faith, Hope and Charity
Francis Pott - On the Morning of Christ's Nativity

Faith, Hope and Charity was written for a friend's wedding and sets the familiar text from Corinthians. Writing for specific performers in mind, the soprano part uses a lot of rather high, cantilena.
