A General Communion
by Frederick Frahm. For SATB chorus and organ. A setting of early 20th century English poet Alice Meynell. From her 1921 collection of ‘Later Poems’. A mystical and deeply devotional text which contemplates the mystery of the eternal banquet in heaven for the faithful. A beautiful setting very much in the English Cathedral tradition.
Hear the Merbecke Choir, conducted by Huw Morgan and accompanied by Robin Walker, perform the work at Southwark Cathedral in London.
