Sixpence Choral Series


(Oh, may God always hold you close)
On a theme from Jocelyn

Composer:  Benjamin Godard
Arranged and Adapted with an Original Text by William Watkins

S-A-B choir or trio and Piano

Duration: 02:05

Alternate Choral Response Duration:  0:38

Benjamin Godard's beloved "Bereceuse de Jocelyn" newly arranged -- with all new text -- for a choral benediction.

Drawn from one of Godard's most-beloved musical themes, Benediction captures something of the prayerful nature of the original and expounds on it to offer reassurance and a full blessing at parting " 'til we meet again", building simple harmonies from Godard's original solo tenor line.

Designed for a small S-A-B choir or trio accompanied by piano, this edition also includes an Alternate Choral Response that may be repeated after a final prayer, as a congregational response, or simply as a stand-alone alternative to the full piece.

7 x 10 octavo edition.
