The Beatitudes Anthem

General Anthem for SATB voices and organ

This may be best described as a theme and variations. The opening melodic motif serves as the catalyst for the entire anthem. Each statement is short unveiling these familiar words from Matthew. The organ accompaniment offers simple broken chords for the majority of the anthem. Vocal ranges are appropriate for each part.

Performance options include use as a sung scripture reading for the Matthew 5 passage. Have the liturgist introduce the scripture and then have the choir stand and sing the anthem. Conclude the singing with the liturgist returning to complete the reading, β€œThe Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.”

Appropriate days: Service themes on the Beatitudes; blessings; and general worship.
