This short setting of the Jubilate was written in 2007 for the upper voice choir, Aurora Nova, conducted by Patrick Craig.  The way I set the text was largely influenced by the fact that the premiere was to take place in St Paul’s Cathedral, with its big, echoey acoustic.   I aimed to give the music space, and to use the acoustic of the cathedral to my advantage.  This is reflected in the fairly slow moving harmonies and often clear, simple melodic lines.
