for upper voices and organ This radiant anthem was commissioned as part of the celebrations to mark Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee. It was first performed at the Service of Thanksgiving on 5 June 2012 at St Paul's Cathedral by choristers from the Chapel Royal, St Paul's, and an expressly auditioned 'Diamond Choir' of young singers from around the UK. Setting a text adapted from Proverbs 8 by Michael Hampel, Precentor of St Paul's Cathedral, that implores the listener to place their trust in a faithful God, Todd employs arching melodies and beautifully simple harmonies that are underpinned by a gentle organ accompaniment. With its peaceful simplicity and sparkling tranquillity, The Call of Wisdom would make an affecting addition to any service or concert. There is also a version for SATB.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Its live broadcast from the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Service in St Paul's Cathedral doubtless helped it to find its way into the repertoire more quickly than many new pieces, but it deserves its success. An adaptation of Proverbs 8 by the precentor of St Paul's, the Revd Canon Michael Hampel, is set to a melody that, just when it sounds as though it needs to find a new direction, does exactly that with the rising seventh that starts its refrain 'I am here, I am with you'. There is also an SATB publication, but this original upper-voice version has a special freshness. * James L. Montgomery, Sunday by Sunday (RSCM), March 2016 *
