Woodgates, Benjamin: Set me as a seal upon thine heart (PDF)


SSATB unaccompanied (with divisions)



These time-honoured words so suitable for the musical adornment of a service of marriage or blessing receive a new and very moving encounter with music through the inspiration of Benjamin Woodgates. His five-part a cappella setting is in a simple three-part form, rightly illustrating the tempestuous waters that cannot quench love in a more strenuous middle section. The overall impression however is of the stillness and solemnity of a special moment of ceremony, by definition unique and unrepeatable, which will nonetheless be renewed in spirit with every performance of this glowing and rapturous setting.
