The Shepherdfor mixed choir (SATTB) a cappella
Text: English (William Blake)
Duration: 3'00''
Difficulty: 2/5

from Karl Jenkins' Motets, for mixed choir a cappella

Text
How sweet is the Shepherd’s sweet lot!
From the morn to the evening he strays;
He shall follow his sheep all the day,
And his tongue shall be fillèd with praise.

For he hears the lamb’s innocent call,
And he hears the ewe’s tender reply.
He is watchful while they are in peace,
For they know when their Shepherd is nigh.

William Blake (1757–1827), Songs of Innocence

Karl Jenkins
Karl Jenkins is one of the most prolific, popular and performed composers in the world today. His recorded output has resulted in 17 gold and platinum discs, while his The Armed Man: a Mass for Peace has received almost a thousand performances in the decade since its première in 2000. Classically trained, Jenkins transcends musical boundaries, from the seminal fusion band Soft Machine to the global crossover phenomenon Adiemus. Recent recordings include Requiem, Stabat Mater, Quirk and Stella Natalis, while he has composed music for HRH The Prince of Wales, Bryn Terfel, Kiri Te Kanawa, Evelyn Glennie and the London Symphony Orchestra. Karl Jenkins has featured on British TV’s iconic South Bank Show, and he has consistently been the highest-placed living composer in Classic FM’s Hall of Fame. He was awarded a CBE by Her Majesty the Queen in 2010.
