Ballad Of The Fading Light

Scored for: Solo violin and piano accompaniment.
Level: Easy
Duration: 7 mins

 

Other Info: Commissioned by violinist Vicky Jolliffe, this evocative and gently flowing work is written for solo violin and and piano accompaniment.

Vicky Jolliffe writes:

“In 2016 I commissioned Will Todd to write a piece for me for violin and piano which would capture the space and ethereal quality of his choral works.

The result was Ballad Of The Fading Light and I am still overwhelmed by extraordinary beauty.  It combines a sense of the vastness of space and time with the feel of an improvisation giving an utterly captivating immediacy to the work.

Opening with a pulsating heartbeat in the piano, long contemplative phrases in the violin line rise and linger.  A central section marked ‘rippling and expressive’ shimmers like a Kandinsky painting before a return to the languid melody of the opening, reworked in different octaves.  At the end we feel alone and yet not lonely, pensive yet not maudlin.”

By all the glories of the day
And the cool evening’s benison
By that last sunset touch that lay
Upon the hills when day was done,
By beauty lavishly outpoured
And blessings carelessly received,
By all the days that I have lived
Make me a soldier, Lord.

By all of all man’s hopes and fears
And all the wonders poets sing,
The laughter of unclouded years,
And every sad and lovely thing;
By the romantic ages stored
With high endeavour that was his,
By all his mad catastrophes
Make me a man, O Lord.

I, that on my familiar hill
Saw with uncomprehending eyes
A hundred of thy sunsets spill
Their fresh and sanguine sacrifice,
Ere the sun swings his noonday sword
Must say good-bye to all of this; –
By all delights that I shall miss,
Help me to die, O Lord.

Breath of God

Scored for: SATB & piano
Level: Medium
Duration: 4 mins 30

Other Info: Breath of God was commissioned by Westminster Presbyterian Church in Madison, Wisconsin. The anthem celebrates God’s work in and through the congregation during its first 100 years. The work was premiered on 5 June 2016, under the direction of Joe Chrisman, Minister of Music.

Will Todd writes: “Searching for a text to reflect Pentecost and also having in mind the celebrations of 100 years of worship at Westminster Presbyterian Church I found myself coming back to the sublime words of Edwin Hatch’s hymn ‘Breathe on me, breath of God’. For me the text boldly captures the spirit of Pentecost as, in Hatch’s words, we are ‘filled with the breath of God’ and seek the ‘fire divine’. The text also talks of renewal and the perfect life – surely a great inspiration for the next 100 years! I hope the gentle, gradually growing melody will provide a passionate expression of these lovely words, allowing for blended unison moments as well as fuller 4 part harmony. Plenty of rubato should be used!”Breathe on me, Breath of God,

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what Thou dost love,
And do what Thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until with Thee I will one will,
To do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Till I am wholly Thine,
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine.
