Description

for SATB and organ This uplifting anthem combines two well-known texts that are commonly read at weddings: 1 Corinthians 13:13 ('And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.') and Song of Solomon 8:6-7 ('For love is strong as death. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.'). The music perfectly mirrors the message of the texts, with flowing solo organ passages and melodic vocal lines building to full homophonic textures at the climax. Portraying a theme that is both personal and eternal, Faith, hope, and love remain is suitable for use not only as part of a wedding ceremony but also for general services and concerts.show more
