More about this title

Vaughan Williams O taste and see: SATB vocal score

for SATB, with optional organ introduction

Flowing and expressive, this is one of Vaughan Williams's most popular and beautiful motets.

Despite being composed for the grand event that was the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, this motet is tender and reflective. Setting text from Psalm 34: 8, the composer opens the piece with the quiet beauty of an unaccompanied treble/soprano solo. After this the lower voices are gently introduced in an imitative texture, in which the simplicity of the rhythms and melodic lines creates a sense of peace and stillness. The motet is particularly suited to performance during communion, having being performed at this point in the coronation service. A version for SSA choir is also available.3535114
