'Seek him that maketh the seven stars'

The anthem by Jonathan Dove, I regret to say previously unknown to me until I read a review in this month's New Directions
Here the work is performed by Tenebrae under the direction of Nigel Short, with Jeremy Filsell on the organ:

Seek Him that maketh the seven stars and Orion 
and turneth the shadow of death into the morning. 
Alleluia, yea, the darkness shineth as the day, 
the night is light about me. 

[Amos 5:8;  Psalm 139]

  1. What a great piece, thanks for the post. Jonathan Dove is composing a piece about Aung San Suu Kyi and there is a record of his meeting her here
