Faber Edition: Choral Signature Series
Voice and Organ
My Beloved Spake was first performed by members of the London Philharmonic Choir, conducted by Neville Creed, in Queen's College Chapel, Oxford, on 23 September 2006. Set to words from Song of Songs, the music is soft and lilting.
The Faber Choral Signature Series introduces a wealth of new or recently written choral music to choirs in search of fresh repertoire. The series draws in a rich diversity of contemporary composers and includes both lighter and more challenging contemporary works, offering a thrilling array of varied styles.
