Poem after listening to Thomas Tallis – Spem in Allium

Sung in harmony
Beauty transformed
Into sound
Sung in haunting melody
Notes of diaphanous clarity
The heart cannot contain
Angel voices rise
Swell in lilting melody
Dark matter illuminated
Ethereal whispers ascend
In harmonic crescendos
Angelic harmonies
Sublime translucent trills
Entwined with human voices
Vaulted cathedral roofs
Cave in and bow
Before the sound
This aching beauty
This haunting melody
Of light crystallised in sound
