Matthew Coleridge - composer

AND I SAW A NEW HEAVEN

for solo soprano, solo cello, organ pedals and SATB choir

Commissioned by Dartington Community Choir, to be performed for the first time alongside my Requiem at Buckfast Abbey, March 2019.
The unsettled time signatures and fluctuating modal melodies bring a dream-like quality to the music, purveying the prophetic visions experienced by John of Patmos in the Book of Revelation.
