Chaconne for Jonathan Harvey
Genre: Solo Organ
Description: A work for organ
This work is in memory of Jonathan Harvey who I assisted as amanuensis on his final choral composition in summer 2012, Plainsongs for Peace and Light. My work refers to a couple of Harvey pieces - quoting plainsong in Plainsongs for Peace and Light and a chord pattern from The Angels (choral work from 1995).
The work was commissioned by the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music (2013). It was broadcast on BBC Radio 3 choral evensong on 15 and 19 May 2013. The work won a British Composer Award in the same year.
