Target Age Group: Grades 3-6 (ideal for incorporating Grade 7-9 treble singers to assist the younger singers)
Description: My Robe Is New is a sweetly energetic anthem, ideal for a reflective moment in worship, a baptismal service, a memorial service or a Spring concert. The text is unusual and filled with memorable images. One of six Shaker source anthems offered in the Viva Voce 2011-2012 curriculum, this anthem provides an opportunity to work on a cappella three-part singing.
My robe is new, my crown is bright, I'm happy, blessed, and free;
I feel as little as a mite, as lively as a bee.
I sip the honey from the flower that blooms in Zion's vale,
I smell the odor from the bower that floats upon the gale.
