Ensemble: SATB tenor bass organ
Scored for SATB choir with tenor and bass soloists, A Lenten Prayer uses a contemporary text by William Loader to
express a prayer for Ash Wednesday. The middle section works in the BCP Collect for Lent between the two soloists before
Loader's text returns for a quiet, contemplative continuation with the whole choir.
A simple, final moment between soloists and choir ends the prayer, which is also suitable for use all year round.
