Let all mortal flesh keep silence

Code: 9780193536340
Series: The Cambridge Singers Hymn Series
Arranger: Rutter, John

Here John Rutter follows Vaughan Williams’ precedent in setting this text from the 4th-century Orthodox liturgy of St James of Jerusalem to a French carol melody. The result is a hymn which is by turn haunting and powerful, with a modal tonality evoking the sound-world of plainchant.
