for SATB (with divisions) and trumpet The Spacious Firmament 2: Yet we who neither burn nor shine is a sequel to The Spacious Firmament. Both pieces may be performed separately, but The Spacious Firmament should always come first if they are programmed together (perhaps either side of an interval). If both pieces are sung, and so two trumpeters are available, it can be very effective if from bar 116 to the end the trumpet part of Yet we who neither burn nor shine is played by a second player offstage, or at a considerable distance from the choir. Yet we who neither burn nor shine sets beautifully a specially commissioned text by Colin Tan which links in its imagery to the Addison text in The Spacious Firmament. Sensitive melodies eventually give way to a joyous climax, enhanced by the delayed trumpet solo which employs an ecstatic improvisatory passage over the choral lines.

About the Author

Gabriel Jackson was born in Bermuda. After three years as a chorister at Canterbury Cathedral he studied composition at the Royal College of Music. Jackson's music has been commissioned, performed and broadcast worldwide, and his works have been presented at many festivals including Aldeburgh, Cheltenham, Spitalfields, and the BBC Proms. His liturgical pieces are in the repertoires of many of Britain's cathedral and collegiate choirs, and his choral works in general have been recorded by some of the world's leading choirs including Polyphony, The Vasari Singers, The State Choir of Latvia, and Merton College Choir, Oxford. He is currently the Associate Composer to the BBC Singers, who have premiered and broadcast a number of recent commissions. Over recent years Jackson's music has been equally focussed on instrumental works. Commissions include works for organist Michael Bonaventure, Red Note Ensemble, and the Lunar Sax Quartet.
