When, in our Music, God is Glorified
|BANKS MUSIC PUBLICATIONS
Text: Rev. Fred Pratt Green (abridged)
Based on the hymn tune Alfege, written by the composer, this anthem was commissioned for the 2023 Conference of the Scottish Federation of Organists, and is dedicated to Herbert Howells, whose influence can be heard in the harmonies.
The text centres on the power and necessity of music in worship, stating that music can open new dimensions that bring profundity to our lives. All people who have a voice should lift in song.
This anthem is suitable for general use.
