The heart-felt setting of "Farewell" was originally included in the popular 'A Garland for Linda', a celebration of the life of the late Linda McCartney. Combining a poignant text adapted from Milton, Shakespeare, and Elizabeth Speller with emotive harmonies, this is an attractive piece by one of Britain's foremost contemporary composers. "Even Such Is Time" is a peaceful and uplifting meditation on death and the afterlife, with softly overlapping upper voices that weave a hypnotic texture over a gentle melody in the tenors and basses to magical effect. The popular text "Go before us, O Lord", with a straight-forward, sensitive music setting is suitable for all sorts of liturgical occasions, not least both weddings and funerals.
