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

Crystal notes
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
