The Prayer blends long, chanting lines with the astringent harmonies they generate when he staggers and inflects them polyphonically. This is an impressive, affecting fusion of ancient and modern.
Jackson illuminates the Prayer of King Henry VI with a beautifully expressive and atmospheric musical setting . . . While the part-writing is largely straightforward and intuitive, the setting has its demands with plenty of scrunchy added-note chords. In particular, Jackson has a fondness for parallel sevenths, which weill test the intonation and tenacity of younger singers. However, for a confident school choir, the technical difficulties are well worthtackling to reveal the rich and colourful qualities of the writing.
