Programme Note

The secure Baroque world is slid apart to reveal something a little less comfortable. Davies begins with an arrangement of the area that blithely reproduces trio-sonata scoring, but then the soprano falls silent and the flute quietly takes up her octaves as sevenths, introducing a new instrumental movement of modern uncertainty. This subsides so that the soprano can continue with her alleluia as if nothing had happened.
