Althea Talbot-Howard: Troparion (Christos Anesti)

Today is Orthodox Easter, so this seems pretty appropriate! No, no choir today. But I think this will do … don’t you?!

From the YouTube page:
This piece incorporates the Greek Orthodox Paschal (Easter) chant in the Dorian mode as its A1 and A2 sections, complemented by original material in the B1 & B2 sections.

It is dedicated to ‘Shiloh’, which is a prophetic name of Christ from Jacob’s prophecy of the future in Genesis 49:10…
“The sceptre will not depart from Judah,
nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet,
until [Shiloh] comes,
and the obedience of the nations is his.”

This performance was given with Dominic Saunders at West Road Concert Hall in Cambridge, on 4 August 2019.

The sheet music can be purchased via my website (www.althea-composer.com). Please send a message via the Contact Page.

Althea is playing a Mollenhauer Modern Alto (Treble) Recorder in Pearwood, with an E-extension bottom joint.
