Composer's note
Oculi omnium was written during a visit to south-west France, and is a peaceful setting of the plainchant gradual taken from the Book of Psalms, Psalm 145 vv 14–15. Beginning and ending in C major, the work's expressive melodic line creates a resoundingly comforting atmosphere. It won the Brasenose College Oxford Platnauer Grace competition, receiving a premiere by internationally-acclaimed vocal group Voces8 in Brasenose College Chapel on 24 October 2010.

Text
Oculi omnium spectant in te, Deus. Tu das illis escas tempore opportuno. Aperis manum tuam et imples omne animal tua benedictione. Mensae caelestis nos participes facias, Deus, Rex aeternae gloriae. Amen

The eyes of all look to thee, O God. Thou givest them food in due season. Thou openest thy hand and fillest every living thing with thy blessing. Make us participants at the heavenly banquet, O God, King of Eternal Glory. Amen.


Psalm 145:14–15
