There is no rose (SSAATTBB, unaccompanied) (2014)

Hewitt There is No Rose (SSAATTBB) SAMPLE SCORE

Dedicated to Sylvia Junge.

Composed for Nigel Edwards and the Parnham Voices. 

Duration: c. 3′ 30″

Text: English Traditional, c. 1420

Programme note by the composer:

In this setting I have emphasised the gradual ‘opening’ of the petals of the rose from simplicity to more complex textures as the choir becomes richer in sonority and more ‘perfumed’ in its harmonic language. The final bringing together of the Latin tags to each verse bring the piece to a (hopefully) rapt and ‘visionary’ conclusion.
