My beloved spake

for SATB divisi & organ

Originally written as an anthem to mark a Silver Wedding anniversary, this piece was rescored and incorporated as the opening piece in the contrasting set of “Three Anthems“, commissioned by the Purbeck Arts Choir in the UK.

It is scored for SATB choir with divisi and organ. Although a dramatic and impactful work, it is well within the reach of any competent choir, and is suitable for both church and concert use.

The text is well known, and often used at marriage celebrations, in festivals of the Blessed Virgin Mary and during Advent.

The other two pieces in the set of “Three Anthems” are “Ponder my words, O Lord” and “Rise heart, thy Lord is risen”. Both are also available via Swirly Music.
