This piece for SATB sets a 15th century Middle English text about the martyrdom on Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral on 29th December 1170.
It was originally composed for Canterbury’s Medieval Pageant which, like many things in 2020, took place virtually online. The recording which is shared here was put together by taking recordings done by very kind friends at home in isolation and piecing them together to form a ‘choir’.
