Other Info:  Commissioned by Chichester Cathedral to celebrate its 900th anniversary in 2008, this SATB and organ work is a setting of the You Have Seen The House Built text by T S Eliot.  The piece is featured on the Call of Wisdom disc, on the Signum Classics label.

You have seen the house built, you have seen it adorned
By one who came in the night, it is now dedicated to God.
It is now a visible church, one more light set on a hill
In a world confused and dark and disturbed by portents of fear.
And what shall we say of the future? Is one church all we can build?
Or shall the Visible Church go on to conquer the World?
