God Be In My Head (Choral). Composed by Mark Schweizer. For SATB. Sacred. Published by Voice of the Rockies (VR.VOR89C04).
The familiar text from the Sarum Primer (God be in my head and in my understanding&.God be at my end and at my departing") is presented here for unaccompanied voices which begin quietly and grow to more fullness and intensity in the middle, then down to a quiet ending with a four-fold "amen". Traditional harmonic structure, but lots of inner voice passing tones skillfully done add to the interest and fullness. A thoughtful, meditative anthem.
