A Wondrous Thing
SSAA or SATB + SA soloists     -     5 minutes

“I stand in wonder of Page’s very special piece of work ... It surely holds together really well ... and speaks with a different and distinctive voice ... It obviously has considerable power of expression.”     -     Robin Sheldon FRCO FRSCM
“I think that this piece is particularly effective. It is a good and concise setting which in style and length is entirely appropriate for liturgical use. The music has an easy flow to it and it is just the sort of setting that I used to enjoy putting down for a Friday evensong at the Cathedral.”

Dr Alan Thurlow, Organist Emeritus of Chichester Cathedral

Hymn to the Nativity
SATB     -     3 minutes

Lullaby (2009)
Double SATB     -     5 minutes
Lullaby works well in both versions and the music suits the words very well. Page seems always to take great care over that. I like very much the opening and the use of bars with three and four beats which ... is very successful in reflecting the anguish underlying the joy in the words.”

Dr Alan Thurlow, Organist Emeritus of Chichester Cathedral
