Programme Note
Tarik O'Regan Martyr Dei (Martyr of God) from Sequence for St Wulfstan (2009)
Martyr Dei is excerpted from a larger work, Martyr, which was commissioned by St Albans Chamber Choir in celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of their founding. It was premiered by the St Albans Chamber Choir and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in St Albans Abbey on 24 January, 2009 under the direction of John Gibbons.

January 2009

Parts are often divided very closely...a thick, almost purposefully clogged feel about the harmony which imparts a real gravitas to this solemn petition to be released from the bonds of the body. Pedal notes beneath tightly scrunched chords give a characteristic idiom, caught between anguish and glory. Challenging and moving.
Francis O'Gorman, Organist's Review,12/1/2010
