Notes on this piece
Emendemus in melius opens with long melismatic phrases of ‘emendemus in melius’ (Let us atone for the sins). It moves to quiet choral implorations which of harmonies create a serene atmosphere. A dramatic climax leads the piece to the end for the words ‘libera nos’ (deliver us).
The work begins as a very personal, introspective "prayer", and progresses through a series of variations culminating in what can best be described as resounding exclamations of pure religious ecstasy. Emendemus in melius is in eight parts and the text is from the Tridentine Matins on the first Sunday of Lent.
The piece was received its first performance on 2 February 2005 by the Choir of the Temple Church under the direction of Stephen Layton.
Emendemus in melius was awarded to the First Prize at The Temple Music Composition Prize in 2004.
