Description
The composer writes: Commissioned by HRH the Prince of Wales in memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and in Aid of The Saints Martha and Mary Convent of Mercy, Moscow. Esoterically speaking, Elizabeth fullofGrace is about the life and martyrdom of Grand Duchess St. Elizabeth, New Martyr of Russia. It resembles an Ikon in sound in its severity of form, and in its ritual incantation of the name of Elizabeth. It is a succinct tellingofthe outward story of her life; her descent into hell (represented by the violent intrusion of the full organ she was hurled down a mine by the Bolsheviks); and a shimmering evocation of the sweet perfume that emanated fromheruncorrupted body when it was later discovered in Jerusalem. Esoterically, the music is a Prayer. Life, death, the encounter with God, then eternity all these realities are already present in Prayer, in the timelessactualityof the Divine Presence. Being present with God in prayer is a death in life and a life in death, as it was for St. Elizabeth, and as it will be for us. Holy Elizabeth, pray to god for us! The music uses three sets ofboys'voices (trebles and altos) two of which should be positioned at a distance from the main choir and orchestra. It is punctuated by the sound of a large Tibetan temple bowl. Elizabeth full of Grace is also dedicated tothememory of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.
