The release of this publication represents a significant contribution to church music repertoire. An accessible, beautiful multi-movement work for choir, organ, and optional orchestra by the esteemed British composer, Andrew Carter. The piece begins with a powerful statement of praise (Great Is the Lord), and is followed by a delightful new setting of For the Beauty of the Earth which is printed in two versions- SA or SATB. The third movement is a wistful and gentle setting of selected verses from Psalm 145 and John 15 (The Lord is Gracious and Merciful). The fourth movement is for solo soprano and is a beautiful treatment of John 15:15 (I Am the Vine), which leads directly into the closing hymn for choir and optional congregation of an original text Thou Art the Vine (available separately as a choral anthem).
Each movement can be performed individually.
