About this release

This CD brings together pieces composed with texts that come from across the liturgical year. The works represent the style of Dan Locklair’s vocal music and show his skill and imagination in settings for a cappella choir, pieces for voices with organ accompaniment, and the central work Gloria with large choral forces, brass octet and percussion. At the core of all these pieces is the text and Dan Locklair’s setting of it.

Commissioned Programme Note

Lord Jesus, Think on Me is a setting of an ancient text by Synesius of Cyrene (ca. 375-430), who was made Bishop of Ptolemais around 410 only several years after his conversion to Christianity. Synesius’s Lord Jesus, Think on Me is the last of a set of ten odes, here with the well-known English translation from the original Greek by Allen W. Chatfield (1808-1896). First published in Chatfield’s Songs and Hymns of the Earliest Greek Christian Poets, 1876, Chatfield stated that his translation was “a paraphrase or amplification, rather than an exact translation of the original.” Read more
