This is a short, lovely choral song in an attractive style that blends traditional harmonies with a gentle, somewhat popular music-styled melody. Irish composer Colin Mawby born in has been an important composer of church music in the British Isles, particularly but not exclusively for the Roman Catholic Church.

He has a long association with the choir of the Westminster Cathedral, where he was one of its choristers when he was a boy, and then served as its Master of Music. This setting of the Latin hymn Ave verum corpus Hail, True Flesh , which celebrates the sacrifice of his body by Jesus Christ and of His mercy, is a bit over three minutes long.

Mawby originally wrote it for chorus with organ accompaniment, but for a Teldec recording of it provided a rich, warm string orchestration of it. The choral writing itself uses the wide, expansive sound of an eight-part texture, allowing richly sonorous chords. The mood is stately, yet warm in feeling and contemplative in spirit. The easy melodic line makes it unusually inviting and beautiful. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.

MAWBY Choral Music

Colin Mawby's retirement as artistic director and conductor of the National Chamber Choir was marked by a special concert at the Hugh Lane Gallery last Thursday evening. The programme included a performance by the choir's regular accompanist, Fergal Caulfield, of two of Debussy's Estampes. But even that top-flight music seemed overshadowed by everyone's recognition that this was Colin Mawby's night. This conductor's characteristic way of shaping a piece through line, dynamics and tone rather than straight rhythmic drive, was well-represented in the Palestrina motets Surge illuminare and Tu es Petrus, and especially in Byrd's Ave verum. It was also prominent in a new work by the Canadian composer Alfred Fisher, whose music has been performed by the NCC on several occasions. Speak Love is a setting of Petrarch, in the composer's translation, and was written for this concert. It was entirely appropriate the evening should begin and end with recent and new examples of Mawby's own music.
