The Preces and Responses are a case-study in effective word-painting. Surprising harmonic shifts inform an atmospheric, sensitive and highly colourful sequence. There is a very lovely Lord’s Prayer in which the meaning of the text is delicately enhanced by fugitive, questing harmonies. [It is] surely great fun to sing and …display[s] the depth of understanding and respect Joubert, a lifelong composer of liturgical music, has for its context.
