Bordoli, Samuel: Almighty and everlasting God
£3.25 – £20.00
This uplifting prayer for peace is an anthem setting of Thomas Cranmer’s Collect for the Second Sunday after Epiphany. And perhaps in the spirit of the day’s epistle – an exhortation from Romans 12 to practise those gifts received through grace – the composer offers here a beautiful account of his choral idiom: a matter of precisely imagined textures, as sensitive to individual line and contour as to the seamless dovetailing of motifs and harmony, and of majestic, purposefully cadenced phrases in affective unity with the sense and breathing of the text. Written for the 2011 Liturgical Music Course and premiered in Winchester Cathedral, Almighty and Everlasting God is well within the standard of capable church choirs, and offers an absorbing and memorable enhancement of reverence in worship for a variety of occasions.
