Regina Caeli : SATB : Cecilia McDowall : Cecilia McDowall : Sheet Music : 9780193439221 : 9780193439221

Cecilia McDowall : Regina Caeli

This hymn to the 'Queen of the Heavens' is a glorious work, replete with dramatic changes of mood and texture.

This pattern of contrasts is repeated throughout the piece before the final jubilant chords fade away to a modest triple piano. This is an approachable and rewarding motet, appropriate for the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary in addition to Eastertide.
Regina caeli has been recorded by the renowned American choir, the Phoenix Chorale, and released on a Grammy award-winning CD by Chandos (Spotless Rose CHSA 5066)

The Presence : SATB : Cecilia McDowall : Cecilia McDowall : Sheet Music : 9780193511989

Cecilia McDowall : The Presence

Written for the Choir of St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh, The Presence sets lines from Psalms 18, 27, 36, 112, and 119. It was inspired by A. E. Borthwick's painting of the same title, which hangs in St Mary's, and the texts chosen are mainly concerned with light. The performance directions used - 'luminous', 'resonant', 'dark', 'ethereal' - express the setting's intense atmosphere and almost visual sense of space and lustre. While suitable for services and concerts throughout the year, The Presence is especially appropriate for performance during Advent.
