Grading: Easy/Medium
M708047933 Full score £2.50

Composed for the boys of Shrewsbury House Preparatory School, Surbiton, this by turns vibrant and reflective setting offers a welcome addition to the small repertoire of Preces and Responses settings composed for unison voices and organ. Although originally for trebles, this accessible setting with its moderate vocal range will be enjoyed by amateur and professional choirs alike, and will be particularly welcome in any parish experiencing a shortage of singers! The manageable organ part plays a supportive role, whilst providing lively colouring for the more dramatic moments. The priest intonation is very straightforward.
