We Have Seen the Lord by Earlene Rentz. For SATB choir, baritone voice, tenor voice, piano. Sacred Anthem, Eastertide. Octavo. Published by Laurel Press (LO.10-3529LA).
Told through the thoughts of nagging doubt from the disciple Thomas, this dramatic anthem vividly portrays those melancholy days following the crucifixion of Christ. But Jesus does reappear as promised, here climaxing in a memorable duet as the chorus intones, we have seen the Lord. With an evocative effect not usually found in anthem format, this compelling piece is both inspired and inspiring.
