SATB Choir, Cantor, Assembly, Organ (optional Brass Quartet) (SATB)
Composed by Alan Hommerding (1956-). WLP Choral Series. Christian, Worship. Octavo. 13 pages. Published by World Library Publications (WL.008828).

Item Number: WL.008828

Alan's rich text speaks of Mary, the chosen one, faithful disciple, blessed among women, and pure in heart. Alan also composed this compelling musical setting for a recent commission. The lyrical melody is supported by organ and brass. In the absence of the brass instruments the accessible organ accompaniment in verse 1 may be used for the entire piece. Verse 2 works wonderfully well as the choir sings the Latin words Beati mundi corde ("Blessed are the pure in heart") while the assembly and cantor continue singing the melody. Verses 3 and 4 feature brass quartet accompaniment as the melody is sung in unison. The final verse utilizes the choir singing the mantra-like phrase Ave Beata ("Hail, Blessed One") beneath the cantor and assembly melody. Assemblies will enjoy playing their essential role in the full version of "By God Kept Pure".
