Mary’s story to inspire us in tough times for SATB choir
SATB choir with piano
Male composers have not particularly focused on Mary’s story. Becky has written the words and music showing the determination and faithfulness of ‘Mary’s Way’: when hard times came, she believed the angel’s words: ‘Fear not’.
As our humanity shudders under struggles and fear, this anthem offers a model of how to live, walking in Mary’s way.
Written in 2018, this 3-minute choral anthem can be sung as unison or in four parts. In preparation for the premiere performance, the Quire St Nicolas that Becky sings in was recorded rehearsing during a heat wave. For this recording, the bass is doubled on cello with piano improvisation by Deb Osman, Music Director of the Quire St Nicolas.
