A simple and sombre chorale composed for Belsize Community Choir, London, by their accompanist during the first wave of coronavirus in the UK, in spring 2020. The material can be expanded on in various ways (see the music score for some suggestions).

The recording is by Belsize Community Choir.


Exspecto mortem meam
Quando nescio.
Cras? Hodie? Subito?
Nescio, timeo.

I await my death.
When, I don’t know.
Tomorrow? Today? Suddenly?
I don’t know. I’m afraid.
