New Manley Hopkins Commission for Xavier College

Over the Australian summer I've been finishing a new commission for Xavier College, setting four poems by the great Jesuit poet Gerard Manley Hopkins. It has been a delight to be setting some of the finest English poetry. The works are for four of the Xavier College Choirs, and includes a finale setting of God's Grandeur for combined choirs, cello and percussion.

The works are due to be premiered at Hamer Hall in August 2019.
