Programme Note:
This A cappella Motet for SSATB is based on the words from the gospel of John 14:1-3: "Let not your hearts be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a house for you". The work is in neo-tonal idiom with functional dissonance to highlight words such as "troubled", progressive chromaticism on "I go to prepare..".
The overall mood is one of reassurance. The 2001 revision of the 1989 version (dedicated to David Garber, Director and the Concert Choir of The King's College, Edmonton) transposed the work from C to D and extended it somewhat. The revised motet received its world premiere in a concert "Celebrating Alberta Composers" by the "I Coristi Chamber Choir", March 15, 2009 in First Presbyterian Church, Edmonton Alberta, conducted by Evelyn Pfeiffer.
