Hal Leonard08753701, SATB, $1.952012 This moving and joyous anthem, written for the Gary Bonner Singers, is based on Jeremiah 17:7-8, which says, “Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope. They are like trees planted near a river, with roots that reach deep into the water.” Written in a flowing 6/8 meter, the piece builds from its intimate beginning to an exuberant chorus, featuring a coda of interweaving voices near the end, calling us to the “river of God’s pure love.” Recommended for choirs who can handle divisi sections and sing independent parts securely. The piano accompaniment is a tour de force in itself. The orchestration is rich with diverse and cinematic colors.
