PROGRAMME NOTE

Ave Reina Caelorum is a simple setting of the well-known Marian Antiphon (though including a short section of the trope Funde, virgo). It carries on a current desire to write shorter, easier motets that are more accessible to a wider range of choirs, though still retaining the thumbprints of my mature style. The motet is in a simple ABA form, with a more expressive middle section bookended by contemplative, homophonic material and a sustained ‘Amen’.
