Programme Note

Winter's Wait was written for the choir of King's College, Cambridge, and is a setting of a modern poem by Robert Tear, a close friend whose death came just days before the present recording took place. Its melody shares its tonality with Peter Abelard's beautiful hymn O quanta qualia, but it bursts into the major for the final stanza.
