- SATB a cappella anthem
- superb voice leading
- Edwardian in style
Calvert Shenk, composer of CNP's popular Rorate coeli, has set a beautiful 19th century text in Edwardian style.
This unaccompanied anthem for SATB voices, showcases the composer's superb voice-leading facility in a style reminiscent of Edward Elgar or Charles Villiers Stanford.
The text, by the great English Catholic theologian John Henry Cardinal Newman, makes this concise motet a sturdy addition to any choir's repertoire:
"Complete thy work, O Lord; and as thou hast loved me from the beginning, so make me to love thee unto the end."
