This communion motet, setting the famous 14th century words attributed to Innocent VI, took the prize in the Composition Competition of The Wessex Festival in August 2016. It has since been sung in venues including Ripon Cathedral, UK.

Set largely homophonically for SATB choir without divisions, its well-structured melody is complemented by the texture created by quaver movement of the inner parts, with a modal feel overall which reflects the era of the text.
