Results for Thomas Weelkes Weelkes:
Weelkes most famous composition was his English anthem "When David Heard".
This introduced a new depth of emotion into music and represented a major
musical innovation. The sighing quality of the "oh’s" in all six parts add to
the emotional intensity of the music. The haunting themes and overtones create
a powerful emotional sensation that culminates in the lines "would God I had
died for thee".
