SATB and organ. Text from Hebrews 13: 20,21. Rich: starts soft, ends big.
Notes: An anthem which can be used throughout the year where the theme is discipleship and service. Remember to keep the lines sustained to achieve a warm and rich tone. The piece is one long crescendo, so start gently and gradually build each phrase to the word ‘ever’ at bar 31. Keep the ‘Amens’ strong with the sopranos paying attention to the other parts, which must come through the texture.
Now the God of Peace that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in his sight; through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
