The last e-mail between two best friends, J. Paul Williams and Joseph Martin, contained the text of this inspiring testimony of faith. Written for a church Paul served during the early days of his ministry, this anthem was completed posthumously and represents the crowning effort for this popular writing team. Strong arching melodic gestures sequence and crescendo lifting to the heights these words: “grace is our miracle, we are your church O, Christ.” Available separately: SATB, StudioTrax CD (Accomp., SplitTrax, Perf.), Orchestration (Score & Parts for Flute 1 & 2, Oboe, Clarinet 1 & 2, Bassoon, Horn 1 & 2, Trumpets 1-3, Trombone 1 & 2, Bass Trombone/Tuba, Timpani, Percussion, Harp, Piano, Violin 1 & 2, Viola, Cello, Double Bass).
