On Love

Description

This atmospheric composition contains outer sections that feature expressive sax melodies sensitively supported by warm harmonies from the voices. A cadenza leads the music into the main choral setting of the poetry - Shakespeare’s beautiful sonnet 116 - over which the sax interjects with high haunting phrases. The work concludes by returning to the haunting mood of the opening, with the saxophone again leading the melodic interest.

As well as being a concert piece, at around 8 minutes long and with a text often used at weddings, it is an ideal piece for a marriage service, and is particularly suited to an ambient church acoustic.

The work was originally commissioned by a true gentleman as a gift for his wife of nearly 60 years.
