Libby Larsen's Eternal Ruler Of The Ceaseless Round for SATB Choir and Organ, with optional congregation.
Eternal Ruler Of The Ceaseless Round is a joyful and exuberant setting of the well-known hymn by John Chadwick. It begins with a rich Organ introduction before the Choir (and congregation) join in with a unison presentation of the melody.
The second section explores the Lydian mode, with its rising fourth, while the adamantine final verse brings the anthem to a resolute close that reflects the text's profound depiction of unity and human understanding.
This piece was commissioned for the American Guild of Organists 2014 National Convention in Boston, Massachusetts.
