My Son, the Beloved

My Son, the Beloved

Product Number: 50-2555

Composer: Blackwell, David



The music, capably written and without over-dramatization, allows this bible narrative of Jesus' baptism to be easily followed. The keyboard part is supportive of the choir but also has its own moments of beauty. An accessible anthem with character and nuance.

Blackwell has written another accessible piece for smaller choirs with a text perfect for the Baptism of Our Lord, celebrated at the end of the Christmas Season (Mark 1:9–11). Fewer pieces a re available that reflect this f east’s Scripture, and Blackwell keeps this setting fairly simple. Only one small section is actually SATB; more of it is ST/AB, so it will take less time to learn during a season when rehearsal time for Christma s Liturgies is at a premium. The piano part is independent and provides an interesting counterpoint to the vocal lines rather than just supporting them.
