Text: Psalm 84
Themes: Hope, patience, nature
Musical material: A simple, chant-like unison passage blooms into a triumphant fanfare
Suitable for: All choirs, or as an introit in a church service / evensong

It was a delight to write Behold, O God for the Church of St Magnus the Martyr. The piece features bold shifts in harmony, like the rotation of a prism. The setting is very syllabic, building from unison chants into a heraldic finale.
Commissioned by St Magnus the Martyr, London Bridge.
