Offertory Anthem No more sorrow Will Todd (b. 1970)
Text from Revelation 21
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
And there shall be no more death,
Neither sorrow nor crying,
Neither any more pain,
For the former things are passed away.
Will Todd is a remarkable artist whose output encompasses song, opera, musical theatre, orchestral pieces, jazz works, community projects and a huge body of choral music ranging from simple anthems for church and youth choirs to complex works for professional chamber choirs. His anthem The Call of Wisdom was commissioned for the Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral, London, on the occasion of HRH Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, which was broadcast to millions worldwide.

Communion Motet Crucifixus Antonio Lotti (1667-1740)
Words from the Nicene Creed
Crucifixus etiam pro nobis; sub Pontio Pilato passus et sepultus est.
He was crucified also for us; under Pontius Pilate he suffered and was buried.
Aside from two years in Dresden producing operas, Antonio Lotti spent his entire career at St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, first as an alto singer, then as assisting assistant organist, assistant organist, main organist, and finally music director for the final four years of his life. Bach and Handel knew his work and may have been influenced by it. His 8-part setting of this brief text is justifiably famous, for its lavish dissonances and other expressive qualities so well suited to the event described.
