Nos autem gloriari premiere

Vaulted ceiling at All Saints' Church, Margaret Street
This Sunday, 22 March 2015, 6pm Evensong at All Saints Church, Margaret Street, London W1W 8JG, is replaced by a Passiontide Sequence of Music and Readings. During the service, my motet Nos autem gloriari will be premiered by the choir of All Saints Church, conducted by their music director Timothy Byram-Wigfield.
Nos autem gloriari comes from my collection Tempus per Annum, which contains motets for the church's year setting the Latin introits - one for each Sunday and major feasts. Though in fact Nos autem gloriari sets not an introit, but an antiphon for Maundy Thursday.
The collection is nearing completion, finally, and I am only three motets off the final one (number 73!); I am currently working on the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, and only have All Saints and the Feast of Christ the King to do. All the finished motets, some sixty or so, are available for free download from the CPDL website.
