Vidi Aquam


for SATB choir and organ


Vidi Aquam is a short Eastertide anthem or offertory motet, composed in 2019 for the choir of St Magnus the Martyr in the City of London. The text is from Ezekiel 47:1:

Vidi aquam egredientem de templo, a latere dextro, alleluia:

Et omnes ad quos pervenit aqua ista, salvi facti sunt,

Et dicent: alleluia, alleluia.


I saw water flowing out of the temple, from its right side, alleluia:

And all who came to this water were saved,

And they shall say: alleluia, alleluia.
