Go Out in Song! (Incorporating "The Lord Bless You and Keep You"). By Lloyd Larson. For SATB choir, piano. Sacred Anthem, All Saints' Day, General, Pentecost. Octavo. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-4143L).
Driving syncopation and resounding joy characterize this magnificent "going out" anthem by Lloyd Larson. A contrasting B section is based upon Peter Lutkin's beloved benediction, "The Lord Bless You and Keep You," and is marked by a quiet intensity. After a modulation, the A section returns to send God's family out into the world wrapped in His embrace and carried forth in song.
