As I review this list, I realize that my choir loves 6/8 time! This communion anthem has an inclusive text stressing “Share as a family, one in community, one in the name of the Lord.” Pote lives in Florida and dedicated this anthem to the Loft Choir of Advent Lutheran Church in Boca Raton. There is much unison singing that occasionally divides into very friendly four-part writing. The keyboard part is in a very rippling style but demands no huge leaps and is very supportive of the vocal parts. The power of this anthem remains in my choir’s memory.
