About the Work

This set of Preces and Responses was written for the Epiphany Parish Choir in Seattle in February of 2021, to be sung for Evensong. This piece was specifically written for SATB choir with no divisi, to make this workable for choirs with one or two singers per part, due to the limited capacity of singers that could be present during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Text

O Lord, open thou our lips.

And our mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

O God, make speed to save us.

O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Praise ye the Lord.

The Lord's name be praised.

 

The Lord be with you.

And with thy spirit.

Let us pray.

Lord, have mercy upon us. Christ, have mercy upon us. Lord, have mercy upon us.

 

O Lord, shew thy mercy upon us.

And grant us thy salvation.

O Lord, save the state.

And mercifully hear us when we call upon thee.

En-due thy Ministers with righteousness.

And make thy chosen people joyful.

O Lord, save thy people.

And bless thine inheritance.

Give peace in our time, O Lord.

Be-cause there is none other that fighteth for us, but only thou, O God.

O God, make clean our hearts within us.

And take not thy Holy Spirit from us.
