Ponder my words, O Lord

for SATB divisi & organ

This anthem is a setting of words from Psalm 5. It is particularly suited to church performance during devotional or penitential seasons such as Lent, or in prayer or dedication services.

The anthem was also incorporated as the middle piece of the contrasting set of “Three Anthems“, commissioned by the Purbeck Arts Choir in the UK, and was first performed in concert in this version in March 2015.

The other two pieces in the set of “Three Anthems” are “My beloved spake” (with which the set opens) and “Rise heart, thy Lord is risen” (which brings it to a triumphant close). Both are also available via Swirly Music.
