(2016) 11 minutes
Commissioned by Lucy Sheerman and Bettina Furnée with funds from Arts Council England. Premiered on 16th February 2017 at Peterborough Cathedral by David Humphreys.
Two Organ Voluntaries were written begin and end Even You Song, an Even Song structured work inspired by the moon (read more here). Where does your faith lie? and Taking Your Leave are inspired the mysteries of space and space travel itself, but can be performed separately as organ pieces in their own right with no programmatic association!
"The opening organ voluntary, Where Does Your Faith Lie? started from a rumbling low bass in the organ, and rose atmospherically yet thoughtfully... the dramatic and vivid concluding voluntary Taking Your Leave."
Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill
"Where does your faith lie? immediately sets a brooding atmosphere of questioning and mystery."
Terry Blain, BBC Music Magazine
