BUT LET MY DUE FEET NEVER FAIL
By Gabriel Jackson
for SATB (with divisions) and organ
This anthem sets a descriptive passage from Milton's Il Penseroso that sees the poet ask for guidance as he enters the 'studious Cloysters pale'. Jackson sensitively sets the words in homophonic and melismatic passages that build to a glorious climax for both choir and organ on 'And bring all Heav'n before mine eyes'. Ideal for dedications, ordinations, and confirmation services.
