And the Lord Shall Deliver Me

Anthem for Women’s Chorus and Strings

I think this is the best piece I have yet written.  The entire thing is based on the simplest possible scalar motive (C Major) and in the second half, only two pitches change.  Despite this tremendous economy of means, I think the piece works.  I certainly intended it for women, but I’d love to hear it done with a good boys’ choir sometime.
