SATB assembly, organ accompaniment, trumpet 1 (B-flat or C), trumpet 2 (B-flat or C), trombone 1 & 2, horn in F, timpani - Easy/Medium
Composed by Jan Michael Joncas. Morning Prayer Benedictus. Sacred. Octavo. 16 pages. Published by GIA Publications (GI.G-7138).

Item Number: GI.G-7138

Language: English. Text Source: "Blessed be the God of Israel," based on Luke 1:68-79, alt. Text by James Quinn. Scripture: Luke 1:68D79. Text source: Luke 1:68-79, alt.

Quinn's words and Joncas' music combine to give voice to the prophecy of Zechariah. This 5-verse paraphrase of the canticle contains two melodies-one for the odd verses one for the even verses. The third verse is an effective, a cappella SATB setting.
