Sicut Cervus shortlisted for Buckfast Abbey’s Choral Composition Competition

Sarah’s setting of Sicut Cervus has been shortlisted for Buckfast Abbey’s Young Composers’ Competition. The competition forms part of a nine-day Festival of Sacred Music in April, which commemorates a thousand years since the Abbey’s foundation; Sarah wanted to reflect this long history in her setting, which references monastic chant and church modes. All the finalists’ pieces will be premiered on 19th April alongside the first performance of Matthew Martin’s new commission setting the same text, Sicut Cervus.
