Sanctum est verum lumen
4th November 2008
Holten’s In Nomine was written for the 75th anniversary of the BBC Singers in 1999 and betrays the composer’s love of early English music, drawing its inspiration from John Taverner.
O’Regan’s I sleep by my heart waketh was composed for the National Youth Choir in 2006 and is a setting of lines from the Song of Songs that focuses on the text’s repetitive, ‘dream-like’ qualities.
'Sanctum est verum lumen' is released on Delphian Records.
