Description

for SATB and organ with opt. strings This is a hymn-anthem setting of a text by OUP poet, Thomas Troeger. Highly participatory in design, this four-verse setting invites the congregation to join with the SATB choir and organ on verses 1, 2, and 4. Verse 1 is sung in unison, verse 2 is men only, verse 3 is a capella, and verse 4 finishes with a rousing decant-and-toccata-style organ accompaniment. The text challenges the listener not to use the name of God to sanction hate and fear, but rather to move towards acceptance of all cultures. An alternate text for the final verse makes it perfect for inter-faith services.show more

Review quote

The interaction between the SATB and the treble-choir parts is nicely mutual: the trebles won't have a feeling of second-class musical citizenship. Even that underscores the text nicely. * The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians October 07 *show more
