About

O Vos Omnes was written for the choir in mid-2006 in the first year of the composer's residency at Wellington Cathedral of St. Paul, and is scored for SSATBB choir with soprano soloist creating a rich harmonic texture, and evoking a solemn mood. Hallmarks of the composer's style are evident here: the use of the floating soprano solo; the doubling of the melodic material in soprano and tenor or alto and bass; the six part texture; the deft use of dark keys; the rather long musical phrases and paragraphs; modal harmonies with added tones; and an always palpable emotion in the music.
