A cycle of three Advent anthems with a text by S.E. Murray for ‘a cappella’ SATB choir. No. 2 contains solos for high soprano and bass. Commissioned by Prof. Peter Godfrey and the Kapiti Chorale in 1995, the work was first performed by Southern Consort of Voices in May 1996. By turns tender, meditative, and exhilarating with fresh, piquant harmonies.
