Thy Will Be Done

By Craig Courtney

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/thy-will-be-done-sheet-music/28023

SATB choir
Composed by Craig Courtney. Sacred. Octavo. Published by Beckenhorst Press (BP.1263).

Item Number: BP.1263

Perhaps the best word to describe Craig Courtney's first and best-selling published anthem is "dramatic". Each verse and refrain has an entirely different texture and atmosphere, from a slow caravan march to the pounding nails of the crucifixion. Christ's struggle to obey the Father becomes real and moving in this Good Friday classic. An accompaniment compact disc (BP.1263CD) is available.

    This song is riveting! Every time I sing it, I AM AT THE CRUCIFIXION! I AM THERE - hearing, seeing, experiencing it all. No other song has so profoundly transported me into the past and exhilirated my entire being.

    The impact of this arrangements continues to resonate long after the final note is sounded. Penetrates the senses, the psyche with the reality of what Christ did for us on Good Friday.

  • March 29, 2008 Deeply moving musical experience

    This composition was a deeply moving musical experience for my choir, portraying the Lord's suffering in Gesthemane with keen awareness yet still conveying the message of hope of the ressurection. The piano accompaniment was very difficult, however, but once mastered, an integral part of the musical setting. I would...

    reccommend this piece very highly.

  • March 10, 2008 Incredible

    This has to be one of the best anthems for the Passion that ever been written by a contemporary composer. When I first introduced it to one of my choirs, they insisted that it be done every Maundy Thursday, so it was never changed. It was the same way with...

    my next two church positions. It is very powerful and absolutely incredible. It is truly an inspired work written by a marvelous present day composer. Everyone that has ever heard it never fails to comment on it and the great impact that it had on them.

  • January 21, 2005 POWERFUL!

    This song absolutely captures the passion and pain Christ experienced in the garden as he struggled with the enormous weight of sin he would soon bear on his shoulders.
