The Good Samaritan composed by Lynn Shaw Bailey. Arranged by Becki Slagle Mayo. For unison/2-part choir and piano. Sacred Anthem. Octavo. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGA1168).
The timeless parable of the Good Samaritan is uniquely depicted in this lively, spirited anthem that asks singers and listeners to consider the poignant question "Who is my neighbor?" Taken from the account in Luke 10:25-37, this selection presents the story in a way that children of all ages will understand. More mature treble choirs will enjoy adding the optional vocal harmony in the anthem's final section. The minor melody and driving rhythms provide musical interest and complement the cultural context of the story.
