Thy Word Is Like a Garden, Lord by Dan Forrest. For Choral (SATB). Brookfield Choral Series. Sacred. 12 pages. Published by Brookfield Press (HL.8745683).
Taking the eloquent Edwin Hodder text, Dan Forrest has written new music that reverently expresses the wonder and depth of God's holy Word. The analogies – a garden of flowers to be plucked, a deep mine of jewels, a starry host, and a shield – show both the beauty and strength of the Word. The anthem ends with a legato sevenfold amen. Instrumental ePak includes score and parts for Flute, Bb Clarinet, F Horn, Bb Trumpet, Percussion, Violin 1, 2, Viola, Cello and Double Bass. BonusTrax CD available. Performance Time: Approx. 4:20.
