A Prayer for All Who Servearr. Gerald Custer - Shawnee Press
The hymn tune MELITA forms the foundation of this moving blessing. The text moves through the branches of service, offering a prayer of protection and mercy upon those who serve. This celebrated theme brings thoughtful new sounds and nuanced countermelodies into the accompaniment and harmonic writing. An alternate sacred hymn text brings a traditional sanctuary usage into play, making this piece a versatile addition to your choral library. Powerful!
