Were You There? was expertly composed by James Whitbourn for SATB Chorus and Organ. The piece was written for Stephen Cleobury and the Choir of King's College, Cambridge.

British composer and conductor James Whitbourn had an international reputation as a composer from the start of his career as a Programme maker at the BBC; during his time there he produced many award-wining programmes and developed a style that gave him a direct connection with an audience.

This well accomplished composer has received many awards for his work including, among others, two Grammy nominations and a Royal Television Society Award.

In the June 2015 edition of 'Sunday by Sunday', Were You There? is described as "effective, atmospheric and not too difficult."

Etchingham GB
A Beautiful arrangement, but the parts do sub-divide, making it not easy for small groups. Otherwise heartily recommended.
Too much sub-division of parts. Not really possible for small groups.

Buckingham GB
A modern anthem that sounds more difficult than t is and which is not beyond the capabilities of a good Parish Choir.
Whitbourn's idiom is a touch conservative and backward looking.
