Remember, O Lord was written to mark the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Arranged for unaccompanied SATB chorus, Jonathan Harvey’s dark and sonorous tone creates an intense and majestic atmosphere. This piece was written as a contemporary equivalent to Howells’ Behold O God Our Defender written for the coronation fifty years earlier.
