Sanctus: London

SATB A Cappella
Lyrics: Anon.
Language: Latin
Duration: 4:30

 
 

Sanctus was composed on a cheap plastic keyboard I got while living in London back in 2004, studying at the Royal College of Music. Its primitive but evocative string pad suggested a soundworld I really liked exploring, and I’ve loved composing on that keyboard ever since.

 

Tenebrae’s recording of the work on the “Ola Gjeilo” album (Decca Classics, 2016) is available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Spotify.
