Several years ago, Shawnee Press released an anthem that was to become a testimony of promise to countless people across the nation. Written for and dedicated to the people of Oklahoma City as they struggled to heal after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building on April 19, 1995, Canticle of Hope has been used to bring comfort and peace in times of tribulation. Lyrics by J. Paul Williams.

    I LOVE this anthem. Very melodius, words are great. Joseph Martin writes lots of good stuff, but this is one of his very best. I would think that every choir would want this anthem.

    This is just about the most beautiful song out there- I'd put it up alongside Pachelbel's Canon in D. It's so comforting and so beautiful... If you're looking for good choral music this is definitely the one to get! It's not too hard, good for...

    middle school/high school students, as well as for adults. Canticle of Hope was written after the Columbine tragedy... God is always there, even in the midst of deepest pain.
