Don't Look Back composed by Joseph M. Martin. For SATB choir, piano. Sacred Anthem, Christ the King, General, Lent. Octavo. 15 pages. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-4095L).
Firmly based in scripture and quoting Luke 9:62, "Don't Look Back" is an energetic original anthem from the pen of Joseph M. Martin. After a slower, bold introduction, the rhythmic drive takes over, and excitement builds as the vocal lines become more independent. Following a rousing unison statement of the theme, the piece quiets to a hushed close without ever losing energy.
