Emma Brown

Mater tenera

SSATBB with optional solos

Duration, c.7'30''
Leaflet Music example(pdf)

An intimate, six-part motet which would enhance a Christmas or Advent programme, and would also be suited for Marian Feasts. It has haunting, lullaby-like motives and harmonies which evoke light coming out of darkness.

This motet was inspired by the children's rights campaigner Christina Noble, who wrote that 'one person is enough to make a difference.' Christina grew up in severe poverty and lived on the streets of Dublin. After a recurring dream, she visited Vietnam and began to care for street children. Today, the Christina Noble Children's Foundation has helped raise over a million children and adults from poverty.
