'Von Herzen – möge es wieder – zu Herzen gehen!'  ' From the heart – may it return to the heart!'

These are the immortal words Beethoven inscribed on the title page of the Missa Solemnis.

In February 2019, Crouch End Festival Chorus invited composers to submit their intepretation of these words in a five minute composition for unaccompanied mixed choir to complement a performance of the Missa Solemnis.

The competition judging panel, included Debbie Wiseman, and the choir’s Music Director David Temple.

"It was the judges' unanimous decision to select Ian Lawson (now known as Iain James Veitch) as the winner.  Ian's work echoes beautifully the simplicity of the words, 'From the heart - may it return to the heart!' and the judges felt that it would sit perfectly as a scene-setter to Beethoven’s monumental Missa Solemnis.”

First performed - Crouch End Festival Chorus, dir. David Temple, Oct 5, 2019, Queen Elizabeth Hall, London.

A keyboard reduction is included for rehearsal purposes.
