The drama of the story of the Road to Emmaus, where Jesus appeared to disciples as a stranger, walking with them, but only apparent to them as they sat at dinner, is realised through intense harmonies and contrasts of tempo and metre. Composed for a broadcast of Choral Evensong from Lindisfarne on BBC Radio 3, the work makes striking use of unaccompanied, divisi voices.
