for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied This anthem is set to a text by the 10th-century Sufi mystic, Al-Junaid. For the most part, the mood is intimate and introspective; intertwining, whispered melodies, sometimes in free time, alternate with quiet homophony. There is a moment of soaring, unrestrained ecstasy towards the end of the piece before it draws to a hushed conclusion. Suitable for a variety of occasions, this is beautiful, challenging music for serious choirs.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The (musical) divisions are manifold, but complexities dissolve into ecstatic simplicities. Music of the spheres. * Peter Dale, Choir & Organ, January 08 *
Jackson's setting is reflective and contemplative, and immensely effective . . . the still, quite passages around pages 13 and 14 are magical; this is definitely a piece worth working for. * Jonathan Wikeley, Music Teacher, February 08 *
Now I have known seems subtly to reflect its Arabic source in rhythmic roulades and modal touches. It leads the choir into free heterophony (significantly on the words 'my tongue hath talked' and 'disunion') but comes together for a notably thoughtful and moving conclusion. * Rosemary Broadbent, Church Music Quarterly, December 07 *
