Spiritus

for mixed choir a cappella
by  Andrew March

The text comprises a solitary verse, St. John 3:8, taken from Nicodemus’ well-known nocturnal conversation with Jesus. The anthem is intended for use in a generous acoustic, such as a Cathedral, where during the many bar rests, the fragmented and overlapping phrases can be given opportunity to resound and reflect until the reverberation dissipates. The overall intention was to create a choral anthem where quite literally, the listener would be able to hear wispy gestures and omnidirectional strands, like the breezing effect of a breath of air around them, but not be able to fully discern exactly where this was coming from.
