"Lord, For Thy Tender Mercy’s Sake" (anthem for Lent, attrib. to Richard Farrant) transcribed for SAB mixed voices in G major with Organ accompaniment. Differing sources describe the composer of this anthem as "John Hilton" and "Farrant". Originally set for SATB in A-flat, this piece is perfect as a a cappella anthem. However, given the limitations of my small choir, I rearranged it for SAB voices with an organ accompaniment. Regarding the composer: although this piece is often attributed to Richard Farrant, it now is thought to be by the elder John Hilton. Few of Farrant’s compositions survive: the best known are the anthems "Call to Remembrance" and "Hide Not Thou Thy Face." (SOURCE: Wikipedia)
