The music was originally composed for solo viola to begin and end Howard Blake’s oratorio ‘Benedictus’ and at the first performance in Worth Abbey in 1980 it was played by the great violist Frederick Riddle. After a performance at St Albans Cathedral in 2019, critic Roderick Dunnett of 'The Church Times' wrote “The finishing touch of the viola solo was one of genius.” The version for solo violin was recorded on film during the lockdown by violinist Alan Parmenter at the composer's studio in Kensington, 18th June 2020.
