Description
Why, O Lord, do you stand far off? was written in memory of the victims of the London bombings on 7 July 2005, questions the presence of God in times of human disaster, particularly when committed by man upon hisfellow man. The piece's focus lies in the two rhetorical questions first sung by the female voices at the beginning. This opening three note motif returns frequently throughout the work, forever challenging the whereabouts ofGod's watchful eye. This commemorative setting of Psalm 10 was recorded by the Exeter College Chapel Choir in 2006.
