Will Todd, born in 1970, is forging a strong reputation for himself as a composer who is equally at ease in opera, oratorio, church music and jazz. His style is instantly accessible and lastingly memorable. He spent his formative years steeped in both jazz and the English choral tradition so in his choral music he is able to juxtapose strong rhythmic drive and rich harmonies with exquisitely lyrical vocal lines.
A short, unaccompanied setting of words by Christina Rossetti. Simple though this piece is, it is hugely effective, uniquely atmospheric and would grace the repertoire of any choir. Scored for SATB a cappella.
