Programme Note
Peter Maxwell Davies Hallelujah: The Lord God Almichtie (1989),
Composed for St. Paul's Old Kirk in Edinburgh, this is a setting in Scots of the passage in the Apocalypse where St. John hears a voice from the throne, that voice appearing here as soprano-alto duets from a distance, building, as Davies has said, ' fine bridge' from the time of the Edinburgh church to the present. Both vocal groups sing in translucent modal harmony with organ support.
