Review quote

I can imagine the sound of this short introit, written for a school choir, filling a chapel with perhaps the whole school singing in unison, enriched by an SATB choir. With a strong organ part, it is a rousing but very short introit for a thanksgiving service. Perhaps Mr Bednall could consider it the start of a much longer anthem using Psalm 95? * Gordon Appleton, www.rscm.com, June 2017 *show more
