How Can I Keep from Singing?
Composed by Michael Burkhardt. Sacred Anthem. Octavo. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGA852).
Item Number: LO.CGA852
Three stanzas of the Quaker Hymn, How Can I Keep From Singing? by Robert Lowry, are set in a ballad-like style in triple meter. The keyboard supports the choir and paints pictures of the text in imaginative ways. Voice part one sings the melody throughout; voice part two sings the descant and countermelody material.
