On Eagles' Wings is a wonderfully uplifting piece by Alexander L'Estrange for upper voices, featuring glorious soaring melodies and an infectious rhythmic drive. It can be performed either with organ or, showcasing L'Estrange's jazz background, with piano and double bass. Ideal both in a liturgical context and as part of a concert programme.

On Eagles' Wings is part of the Faber Choral Signature Series which introduces a wealth of new or recently written choral music to choirs in search of fresh repertoire. The series draws in a rich diversity of living composers, offering a thrilling array of varied styles.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"L'Estrange's music is always tuneful and accessible, and although this anthem is more challenging than some of his others, On Eagles' Wings has much to recommend it. Commissioned by St Davids Cathedral Festival it was written with cathedral choristers in mind, and long, sustained phrases, plus a vocal range which is fairly high throughout for the first sopranos, would prove demanding for inexperienced singers. The organ part, on three staves, can be given to a pianist (playing the manual part) with an electric bass playing the pedal line - a reminder of the composer's jazz roots which permeate his musical style. Overall this would make an uplifting anthem for confident trebles or upper voices."
Esther Jones: Church Music Quarterly - June 2011
