Hymn to the Virgin (SATB)

for SATB choir a cappella

The words of this carol/motet are well-known from Britten’s teenage tour-de-force, but that double-chorus setting is out of the reach of most church choirs. The powerful text, alternating English and Latin in the style of medieval carols, warrants an additional, simpler setting.

The work is suitable for concert performance, as well as for liturgical use during Advent, at Christmas or on feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is David Fawcett’s best selling work and is instantly popular with choirs, congregations and audiences, with its sincere, tender and moving communication of the devotional text.

    This composition won first prize in the Longfellow Choral Composition Competition in 2011. I have enjoyed Longfellow’s poetry for many years–“Excelsior” in particular. However, I’ve never managed to develop a huge amount of sympathy for the poem’s protagonist. Here we have a youth who ignores the advice of everyone around him that his journey was […]

Midway through, the chorus softly occults between two simple chords under an alto then baritone soloists. The opening patterns return before a fugal section at the text “cum santo spiritu.” The final Amen is another […]
