Ave Regina : SSATB : Cecilia McDowall : Cecilia McDowall : Sheet Music : 9780193355576 : 9780193355576

Cecilia McDowall : Ave Regina

No. 1 of McDowall's 'Three Latin Motets', Ave Regina is a gentle and lyrical setting of the text 'Hail, Queen of the Heavens'. The calm and memorable opening phrase is hinted at in passages of more intensity, and its partial statement at the end leaves it lingering after the voices have faded away. Ave Regina 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)).

Tarik O'Regan : Care charminge Sleepe

God is Light : SSATB : Cecilia McDowall : Cecilia McDowall : Sheet Music : 9780193415652

Cecilia McDowall : God is Light

Commissioned by Ralph Woodward and the Fairhaven Singers in memory of Dora Kemp, one of the choir's sopranos, God is Light sets lines from Psalm 139, 1 Thessalonians, and 1 John. It moves from an unsettled tonality at the beginning, through anguished false relations and wistful expressivity, to find triumphant resolution in a blazing A major at the end. Like all of McDowall's music, it is well crafted and singable.
God is Light was first performed on 12 November 2016 in Queens' College Chapel, Cambridge, by the Fairheaven Singers and Perse Prep Senior Choir (director Paul Harris), conducted by Ralph Woodward.

Joy and Woe are woven fine : SSATB : Cecilia McDowall : Cecilia McDowall : Sheet Music : 9780193385504

Cecilia McDowall : Joy and Woe are woven fine

This expressive Wedding anthem sets an extract from William Blake's Auguries of Innocence.

Love Incorruptible : SSATB : Cecilia McDowall : Cecilia McDowall : Sheet Music : 9780193524194

Cecilia McDowall : Love Incorruptible

Love Incorruptible sets words from Ephesians that explore the themes of love and kindness. The anthem begins with the directive 'Let all bitterness and wrath and anger be put away, awake!', set by the composer in a way that engenders a mood of reflection and hopefulness. The tender central section is built around the words 'Be kind, tender-hearted, one to another', while the closing section presents a compelling contrast of emphatic 'awake!' declarations in the upper voices and punchily rhythmic repetitions of the titular words in the lower voices.

Now may we singen : SATB : Cecilia McDowall : Cecilia McDowall : Sheet Music : 9780193396968

Cecilia McDowall : Now may we singen

Setting a fifteenth-century English text containing some short Latin passages, this is a joyful, dance-like carol with a medieval feel. The spirited, lilting melody begins in the sopranos and altos but is passed round the choir, while the other voices add stirring harmonies and bell-like drones to the texture. Now may we singen was originally published in the New Horizons collection The Ivy and the Holly.

O Oriens : SSATB : Cecilia McDowall : Cecilia McDowall : Sheet Music : 9780193388369

Cecilia McDowall : O Oriens

A setting of one of the seven Advent 'O' Antiphons, O Oriens makes use of luxurious and exotic harmonies, creating a shimmering texture reminiscent of the biblical Morning Star referenced in the title. The focus on human enlightenment in winter's darkness means the piece is equally suitable for secular celebrations of Christmas. It was commissioned for the Choir of Merton College, Oxford, and in 2013 was shortlisted for a British Composer Award.

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. The majestic chords of the opening bars quickly give way to a spirited section in which unison altos and basses mimic the insistent flourishes of the sopranos and tenors. 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.
