Words by Cecily Taylor
The message of Slow Down, Moses! for unaccompanied SATB is that, rushed off our feet in the bustle of the world, we must make time to hear the voice of the spirit. The words are a short, highly entertaining paraphrase of a text from Exodus. A light-hearted setting of a serious message, the music contains ample scope for humorous exaggeration, and should prove a hit with audiences and singers alike.
