The journeying of the spirit between bleak despair and serene joy is portrayed in this programme of sacred music to be given by The Ionian Singers and organist Julian Collings, conducted by Timothy Salter. The plea for help in affliction is most tellingly expressed in Purcell’s Jehovah, quam multi sunt hostes, more restrained yet still intense in his Hear my prayer and Blow’s Salvator mundi. Anguish and despair run through Eliot’s words in Harvey’s The dove descending, and earthly vanity is lamented in Warlock’s setting of Webster’s All the flowers of the spring. Salter’s Scuto circumdabit te echoes the search for reassurance heard in the Purcell, with the image of a shield occurring in the texts of both. From the 19th century and early 20th century come four rich settings: SS Wesley’s Wash me throughly, two rarely-heard anthems of Stanford and Bainton and Ireland’s Greater love hath no man. Three of Mathias’s Rex Gloriae motets complete the programme.
