Mary, Mary

Composed by Richard K Avery. Arranged by Donald S Marsh. Sacred Anthem, Advent. Octavo. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGA1216).

Item Number: LO.CGA1216

Sacred Anthem, Advent.

Michael Burkhardt's arrangement of "Mary, Mary" is a haunting and thoughtful adaptation of Avery and Marsh's original song. The text explores the different names of Jesus-- Lord, Shepherd, Savior, and King--and what the Christ child means to all of God's people. As the vocal line splits into two parts, the composer uses canon techniques and rhythmic lines against sustained lines, producing an interesting yet accessible piece for all ages.
