Stunning! Jay Althouse's inspired adaptation of Handel's beautiful "Largo" features new lyrics and a flexible format, perfect for communion services throughout the year. It offers two verses by Sally K. Albrecht, one each celebrating the bread and the cup. Sing one verse at a time during the serving of communion, or sing both verses as a regular anthem. Either way, this masterwork is a distinctive choice, especially effective for Palm/Passion Sunday and Maundy Thursday. Available in 2 voicings.
