Recently, at an evensong, I was happily listening to the [sung] Responses, eyes closed - they were so lovely and I thought to myself, They must be by Gary Davison - and they were! Your music is incredibly uplifting and moving; and in my opinion, among the very finest and most sublime of church music. Endless thanks to you for providing the world with such beautiful music."

It's been a long time since a broadcast of Choral Evensong has been featured on 5:4; today's service from Wells Cathedral-part of the New Music Wells Festival-broke the moribund trend of these broadcasts to celebrate English banalities in aspic, & revelled in a collection of new choral music.?It got off to a poor start, however; the American composer Gary Davison's setting of a text by Thomas Ken, "Glory to thee, my God, this night", does little more than execute the most perfunctory & predictable word-painting; it's an utter waste of a really rather lovely text-do we really need yet more composers incessantly churning out this banal brand of generic guff?
...
Perhaps a few, such as my dear choristers, will be astonished that Mr Davison is so old!

Critical acclaim supports this esteem with such descriptions of his work as "persuasive ... imaginative and polished ... sumptuous and engaging" (The Washington Post); "seductive and spirited ... smooth, flexible and clear, allowing the music to shine from within" (Hamburger Abendblatt, Germany); as well as "breathtaking and exquisite ... exactly the kind of rewarding challenge singers love best. (The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians).
