The Hidden Face of God Text: Edward Wilson (1872-1932); Bible: Job 37, 38 Duration: 3½’

We seek the secrets of the earth, the secrets of the heavens, But find the hidden face of God. (Edward Wilson) Out of whose womb came the ice? And the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? The storms of winter strike: and the breath of God Freezes streams and rivers. (Job: 37, 38) We seek the secrets of the earth, the secrets of the heavens, But find the hidden face of God.

Commissioned by the Chapter of St. Paul’s Cathedral through the generosity of Mr. Tom la Touche. First performed by St. Paul’s Cathedral Consort, conducted by Andrew Carwood, with Simon Johnson, organ, on 29 March 2012 at a service to commemorate the British Antarctic (Terra Nova) Expedition, 1910-13

Dedicated to Howard Skempton
