Hall, Alex: A Grace (PRINTED VERSION)
This PRINTED version is available to purchase as a regular sheet music title for delivery by post.
This stately and sonorous grace was written for a celebration held at Oundle School of the civil partnership of two friends of the composer, who points out that as one studied at Oxford and the other at Cambridge, he chose a text with no association to any particular college! Though appropriate in purpose to any occasion where a communal meal is shared with a sense of thankfulness, the words, relating to God’s gifts in all kinds and degrees, make it equally suitable as an introit before a service such as Evensong. The rich sound of five parts, with its prominent alto duet, reflects the parts usually sung by the dedicatees.
