BOOSEY & HAWKES

The Strathclyde Motets 1 & 2

James MacMillan

Fourteen communion motets for specific liturgical occasions, composed from 2005-10 for performances by Strathclyde University Chamber Choir. Scoring is for mixed voices, many of the pieces with divisi, and all but two of the motets are unaccompanied. Music of great beauty and accessibility which will enrich the repertoire of both church and concert choirs. Suitable for various ranges of ability.

'Atmospheric and powerful, his church music is achingly beautiful. Pain and piety seem to go hand in hand yet there is delight there too' Gramaphone

'Dignified, liturgical, profoundly moving... some truly inspiring music' Classical Source
