for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied
In this short setting of two verses from Psalm 84, John Scott has crafted an impressive anthem whose arching melodic lines, triadic textures, and frequent divisions will be particularly suited to the expansive acoustic of a larger space.

Review quote

It has both momentum and moments of stillness very fitting to its text. It is a welcome addition to the repertoire. * Music Teacher June 03 * In its 31 bars it says much more than many a longer work. The final chord that lingered in the St Paul's acoustic would also linger long and gratifyingly in the mind when it is sung elsewhere. * Church Music Quarterly June 2003 *
