Composed for the Michaelmas Celebrations at St Michael’s, Framlingham, for the choral festival of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich. The main choir was placed in the nave, the organ at the west end, and the children’s choir at the far east end of the church, around the high altar.

The musical inspirations for this piece range from Benjamin Britten to Arvo Pärt, taking in various Michaelmastide texts.

The original performance (under the pseudonym "Westyrne") was given by the massed choirs of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich on Saturday 02 October 2010, conducted by the composer, as part of the Diocesan Choral Festival celebrating Michaelmas. The organ was played by Mr John Cooper of St Mary-le-Tower, Ipswich, and the children’s choir part was sung by the cathedral choristers of St Edmundsbury, under the direction of Mr James Thomas.
