SATB, S solo, and organ. Text from Psalm 24, Genesis 1, Psalm 8, Psalm 50, and Matthew 10. A wonderful anthem of Creation and the natural world: great for stewardship-themed occasions!
Notes: A rhythmical anthem in rondo form for Harvest or other season celebrating creation. Make sure the rhythms are precise by making the singers speak the words before adding the notes. Then concentrate on the notes and expression in each section before putting the whole piece together. The words dictate a wealth of imaginative word painting and variety of articulation. Sections like pages 141-142 and 145-147 could be sung by a solo quartet to provide contrast and for ease of performance. Keep it lively and bright and the more reflective passages rhythmical but expressive.
