Peace I Give to You

By Craig Courtney

SATB choir
Composed by Craig Courtney. Arranged by Craig Courtney. Sacred. Octavo. Beckenhorst Press #1632. Published by Beckenhorst Press (BP.1632).

Item Number: BP.1632

Slow, layered vocal phrasing and quiet dynamics are incorporated in this serene setting of Christ's eternal words of comfort. The music gathers forces in the middle of the anthem when our Lord acknowledges the reality of tribulation and His power to overcome it. The greatest appeal, perhaps, is provided by a lyric violin obbligato that reflects the changing emotions of the text throughout. Violin part is included in the octavo. Also available in SSA voicing in SSA Craig Courtney.

  • August 28, 2008 Lovely setting for the text

    When I heard this lovely anthem it moved me to tears. It was not originally scored for harp, but a harpist and violinist added beauty to the organ accompaniment. This anthem is subtle. However, the nuances of the dynamics and lovely sustained lines are Craig Courtney at his best.
