Hymn to Saint Cecilia in E
Words and Music by Kathryn Sadler
Published in two keys: C for women’s choirs and Eb for treble choirs
A Cappella Hymn to St Cecilia, the patron saint of music - or to whoever, or whatever it is that gives us music! The song means to express what it is that music does for us in our daily lives. So despite the title, it was conceived as a secular work. Simply constructed, the song is strophic, with each part carrying a verse and the remaining parts accompanying.
