This is a must-see anthem! Program it as a refreshing contrast in any concert or service with its 6/4 meter, open harmonies, and unique orchestration. The text, an adaptation of Psalms 37 and 126, reminds us of God’s goodness and faithfulness. A hauntingly gorgeous melody with a Celtic flavor opens this piece, evoking images of the rolling hills of Scotland. The bass beneath it mimics the drone of a bagpipe, providing the foundation of the traditional Celtic harmonies in the accompaniment and voices that is so musically satisfying! After a short contrasting section with a change in meter to 4/2 and in harmony to rich, altered-tone chords, the first theme returns, the parts written more fully to declare, “Delight yourself in the Lord!” Much unison and 2-part writing paired with straight-forward 4-part writing and a relatively easy piano accompaniment make this accessible to almost any SATB choir. Check out the accompaniment CD or the orchestral parts to further enhance your performance with woodwinds, strings, and percussion.
