Ensemble: Unison choir organ
This setting of Like as the hart is very flexible and can be sung by unison, upper or lower voice choirs of any size, or by a soloist. The text is based on the first few verses of Psalm 42 and the phrases could also be sung by alternate voice types to mimic antiphonal singing. The anthem is suitable for use throughout the year and would be a handy addition to any choir library. It was composed during the pandemic and was designed for use whenever something might be needed at short notice or when voice resources are depleted, overstretched or uncertain. Like as the hart was composed as a companion work alongside The Beatitudes which is also published by CMP.
