Trust ye in the Lord forever, for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting = peace. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee, because he trusteth in Thee.   Let the people praise Thee O God! Yea let all the people praise Thee! Then shall the earth bring forth her increase,=3D20 and God shall give us His blessing.     It is ABA form. The outer sections are a triumphant and energetic song = of=3D20 praise to God while the middle section is a beautiful, lyric and = reassuring=3D20 statement of God's promise to bring peace to His faithful.=3D20   If anyone else has done this piece with their choirs, I would be most=3D20 interested in your opinion of it and what your singers thought of it.

(back) Subject: IRC tonight From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Mon, 16 Jul 2001 22:46:38 -0700   Sorry I missed it, folks ... I've been IMMERSED all day and night today in preparing a HUGE funeral for Thursday next ... so much for "vacation" (grin) ... but nobody else knows how to DO it (chuckle).   I have to be to the printer's first thing in the morning with the congregational booklets AND the newly-typeset choirbooks. The choirbook has been ready to print for a month, but the Rector was SUPPOSED to be proof-reading it for content ... and of course he didn't ... oh well (grin). He's gonna get what he's gonna get. Now we need it for a rehearsal WEDNESDAY NIGHT.   This ALWAYS happens ... I've been fooling around with finishing all this stuff for FOUR YEARS, but I NEVER *really* work on it until I'm on deadline for a funeral. Each time I get a little more done.   Well, at least now the choir won't have to sing from handwritten manuscripts anymore (grin).   Cheers,   Bud

I have sung, it, and, while I am not sure it is a replacement for Parry's "I was Glad", it is fun to sing, and well received by both the choir and congregation.   ns
