Christ, the Dawn!
'Christ, the Dawn!' was written in late 2010, by composer Tom Recknell using words by Eton College Master, James O'Brien. The text, intended for the feast of Ascension Day encapsulates the image of Christ's final ascension through "colour...song and light". The music starts by echoing the dawn, before "we" stumble awake. By the end of the piece, the choir repeats "There is no other prayer but this", reticently at first as a solo treble (Jack Eastwood) encourages us with his "Thank Him". The music rises, crescendos, as the dawn, as Christ, is carried to the heavens.
This recording was made on 27 May 2011, by the Eton College Chapel Choir who gave the first performance of this piece during their morning service. The choir was directed by the precentor, Ralph Allwood.
