Description

For Two-part mixed choir — men and women [trebles] with organ. An idyllic, sumptuous setting of a text by Christina Rossetti. The two parts start in unison, then in canon, then move into gentle harmony. Nothing difficult about this one - just lovely writing. The text is general enough to sing anytime, based on Matthew 6:26-28. A perfect summer anthem: flowers, birds, God's grace ... what more could you ask for?

The version on the recording with strings and clarinet in B-flat is available in the ZIP (EXTRAS) file.

     Consider
The lilies of the field whose bloom is brief:—
     We are as they;
     Like them we fade away,
As doth a leaf.
     Consider
The sparrows of the air of small account:
     Our God doth view
Whether they fall or mount,—
     He guards us too.
     Consider
The lilies that do neither spin nor toil,
     Yet are most fair:—
     What profits all this care
And all this coil?
     Consider
The birds that have no barn nor harvest-weeks;
     God gives them food:—
Much more our Father seeks
     To do us good.
