This anthem for SATB voices and organ has been written for HM the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Setting an original text by Michael Hampel, Precentor of St Paul’s, the text glorifies faith in God over worldly wealth or possessions. The upper voice version premiered at the Jubilee Service on 5 June 2012 in St Paul’s Cathedral by the choristers of the Chapel Royal and a special ‘Diamond’ Choir of children, to be auditioned by the BBC and assembled for the service.
Written for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Service of Thanksgiving in St Paul's Cathedral on 5th June 2012.
A gentle anthem suitable for all choirs not only as part of their Diamond Jubilee celebrations but also for general concerts. The work is very easy and is achievable by choirs at all levels.
