In the Garden by Lloyd Larson. For SATB choir, piano. Sacred Anthem, Eastertide, General. Octavo. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-3781L).
Sweet and gentle, this fresh new setting of a 19th-century gospel gem is full of delightful harmonic surprises. The first and second verses open with women's and men's voices, respectively, swelling into rich four-part textures for each of the refrains. A key change leads to a highly expressive, reflective close.
