Communion Motet Locus iste Paul Mealor, 2009
Words: Latin gradual for the dedication of a church
Elizabeth Proteau, soloist
Locus iste a Deo factus est, inaestimabile sacramentum, irreprehensibilis est.
This place was made by God, a priceless sacrament; it is without reproach.
Paul Mealor has been described as “the most important composer to have emerged in Welsh choral music since William Mathias” (New York Times, 2001) and his music is “marked by something outside of himself that is beautifully spatial and evocative of landscape… it illuminates both our past and our future” (The Guardian, 2011). Gaining international prominence after his setting of Ubi caritas was premiered at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Paul Mealor has written some of the most beautiful and challenging choral music in the repertoire.
