Text by Susan Sayers and Michael Forster Music by Kevin Mayhew Songs of Intercession is a marriage of inspirational texts and meditative music, making each of the eight pieces ideal for any quiet moment - at the Communion, for example, or as aids to quiet prayer by groups or individuals.
The texts intercede for those in any kind of need and open up the possibility of ourselves being part of the healing.
The wonderfully melodic music is multi-functional in that it may be performed in unison by everyone present or by a mixed-voice choir accompanied by any keyboard instrument with or without other instruments. There are optional short improvisations which may be used for silent prayer.
The eight titles are:
The breaking of bread
Take us by the hand
Trust in the Lord
To love with all your heart
Wise and holy God
The giver of good
A recording of great beauty involving fine singers and instrumentalists is available and is ideal both for hearing how the music should sound and as a resource for prayer services.
