for SATB and organ Setting a section from The Blessed Virgin Compared to the Air we Breathe by Gerard Manley Hopkins, this Marian piece opens with an extended soprano passage, underpinned by soft yet characterful organ writing. Several hallmarks of Jackson's style are evident, including soaring, melismatic soprano lines, sonorous harmonies, and repeated organ motifs. The result is a captivating and emotive work for church and concert use.

His tonal language is, fairly consistently in his many popular works, a singular admixture of rhythmic freedom, atmospheric textures, and a diatonic landscape devoid of either strong functional tonality or pandiatonic haze. His tonal centers are usually very clear, yet the music avoids recognizable tonal gestures . . . The inherently musical phrases of the poetry, such a hallmark of the output of Hopkins, elicit elegant responses from Jackson, making text and setting an intimate pairing. Even without chromaticism or heavily dissonant harmonies, the music provides challenges for singers. Yet for fans of Jackson's music, this anthem is one of his finer offerings. * Jason Overall, Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians, January 16 *
