Tavener set Henry Vaughan’s They are all gone into the world of light in the late 1960s within his Celtic Reqiem, but now has returned to it as text for a stand-alone anthem. The tempo mark is ‘With the air of Paradise’ (followed by a metronome mark), making the intention clear to invoke that ‘world of light’. A haunting six-bar phrase (three bars plus an answering three bars) is sung seven times, with varied harmonic and contrapuntal treatments appropriate to the poem. Simple, but with exquisite craftsmanship.
