James Whitbourn's Set Me As A Seal Upon Thine Heart for SATB and Organ.

Composed for the wedding of James Roman and Grace Svatek
Trinity Church, Princeton, New Jersey, November 4, 2017

Duration: 4.5minutes

James Whitbourn's setting of the text popular at weddings, Set me as a seal upon thine heart is a worthy competitor for Walton's well-known version. For SATE choir, and not too demanding -though needing vocal clarity and accurate pitching - it is in an ABA form, the gentle opening and concluding sections separated by the build-up to the climax on a C-sharp major chord at the end of the phrase 'many waterscannot quench love', followed by a brief organ interlude before subsiding to a piano ending. The whole is lightly and supportively accompanied on the organ. It is well worth considering by choirs needing new ideas for theirwedding playlist. - Organists' Review
