Composer Commentary

This anthem, scored for SATB choir with keyboard accompaniment, sets the familiar text from John 13:34-35, offering a reflective, yet affirmative addition to the choral repertoire. The lyrical vocal parts are supported by a flowing accompaniment; although originally written for organ, it can be easily adapted for piano. The text encourages us, as disciples ourselves, to reaffirm our love for one another, and in a world of such change and uncertainly, the message is as relevant now as it was then.
