A Lenten Prayer
for SATB choir
Programme note

This, my first choral work, was commissioned by David Poulter for the choir of Coventry Cathedral. The commission was for a piece to mark the start of Lent, and A Lenten Prayer is therefore a short, earnest exhoration for the season that lies ahead.

Text

Through the true fast, Lord,
may your healing light break forth upon us,
shining like the dawn,
and your glory, the glory of God, ever protect us.
