for SATB and soprano solo Fresh and unsentimental, this setting is as beautiful as the familiar anthem by Stainer of this much-loved text, and a worthy alternative.show more

Review quote

This is a very simple, homophonic setting, essentially a four-part first section repeated with an added solo-soprano counter melody. In spite of the apparent simplicity, this is an expressive setting with some interesting harmonic colouring and ever-extending melodic range. The added soprano line adds some uplifting touches. As part of worship it could provide a moment of intense spirituality if performed with appropriate style, feeling and conviction. * Music Teacher Nov 2000 * One of the most versatile choral composers around today, and one, moreover, who thoroughly understands the human voice, Bob Chilcott has presented the choral repertoire with an unusual setting of one of the loveliest passages from the New Testament, John 3:16 . . . A very welcome addition to the Passiontide and Easter repertoire, it is within the capabilities of any good parish church choir. Warmly recommended. * Herbert Howell, Australian Music Teacher March 2002 *show more
