Written for the cathedral choir in 1832 while SSW was in post at Hereford. The anthem’s harmonic and structural modernity led to its celebrated dismissal by the long-forgotten R. J.S.Stevens (one of the judges for the Gresham Prize Medal for a new church anthem, for which SSW submitted it in 1833)as ’a clever thing; but not Cathedral Music’. It has long, and justly, been a staple of the choral repertoire, of course. TEXT: based on 2nd (rev) edn, Anthems by SSW, 1853. This edn notably includes a piano part below the organ staves. Where they differ, I have amalgamated them.
