Goodall’s Eternal Light, Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms and Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb

Goodall himself writes that a modern Requiem is one that acknowledges the terrible, unbearable loss and emptiness that accompanies the death of loved ones, and that musical expression can provide some outlet for this, even possibly some comfort. His requiem Eternal Light, with its haunting lyrical melodies and setting of both poems and traditional texts, does just that.

Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms is a unique blend of Biblical Hebrew verse and Christian choral tradition: a musical depiction of the composer’s hope for brotherhood and peace in Israel.

Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb, a powerful setting of Christopher Smart’s poem, describes the praise and worship of God by all created beings and things, each in its own way.
