Programme Note
Peter Maxwell Davies Hymn to the Word of God (1990),
This is a setting in Greek of an Orthodox prayer to Christ as Son and Word, God and Man, risen and saving. The prayer is led by a solo tenor and sung mostly by the men, with the upper voices entering only for an appeal to Wisdom (sofia) and the final alleluia.
