Tarik O'Regan : Lamentation : TTBB : 01 Songbook : 14023811

Tarik O'Regan : Lamentation

Commissioned by Matti Hyokki and the YL Helsinki Male Voice Choir, Lamentation uses extracts from one of six laments by Peter Abelard (1079 - 1142) which were found in a manuscript that was only discovered in 1830 in the Vatican. Helen Waddell, in the accompanying notes to her translation of the text, suggests that in this searing meditation on one of the most controversial and multi-faceted Biblical passages (II Samuel 1:17-27), 'Abelard's passion, that never escaped in his strange, remote letters to Heloise, for once awakes and cries'. Although written with particular reference to David, slayer of Goliath, and Jonathan, son of King Saul, it is the ecumenical sentiment of loss felt by persons of any faith or none that pervades Abelard's beautiful Latin text and, indeed, my rendering of his words.

Tarik O'Regan : The Night's Untruth : SATB : Sheet Music : 888680747497 : 00260722

Tarik O'Regan : The Night's Untruth

Tarik O'Regan's The Night's Untruth for SATB chorus, brass ensemble and organ is a co-commission celebrating the 10th anniversary of JAM (The John Armitage Memorial Trust) and the 40th anniversary of VocalEssence. 'The Night's Untruth explores the use of sleep as metaphor by dint of excerpts from poems written in the 17th to 20th centuries. Death, love, fear, ecstasy, isolation, dreaming and rest are all textual variations on the theme of sleep and can be found in the chosen texts. The work's title is taken from a line in a poem by Samuel Daniel (1562-1619) and speaks to the composition's focus on sleep as a parallel, possibly dystopian, existence to the one experienced in our waking hours.' - Tarik O'Regan, March 2010

Tarik O'Regan : Fleeting, God

Commissioned by the Genesis Foundation, for The Sixteen and Harry Christophers. Over tranquil, sustained lower voices, intoning the single sound ah, the altos and sopranos add soft, almost whispered interjections. Then a radiant soprano line beams out above, gradually building over close-knit chords to a joyous climax. The opening calm returns, but the upper voices still, the lower voices punctuating. Finally the female voices are left holding on, fading away, till the sopranos edge up to a momentary last D.
