My lovely oneop. 27 1 (1946)
Anthem for chorus (SATB) and organ
Edward Taylor (E)
Boosey & Hawkes
This work is available from Boosey & Hawkes for the world.
This is the first of the set of three anthems in this opus which also includes God is Gone Up, and Welcome sweet and sacred feast, but is on an altogether different scale from the others, being short and straightforward. It sets post-metaphysical verse by the 16th/17th century poet Edward Taylor and is a piece which is full of beauty and longing, making it entirely suitable as a wedding anthem, as at its first performance.
