Reviews
"The most familiar passage of Holy Scripture is presented in a highly expressive and beautiful motet. Most of the writing is strophic in style with frequent use of chromaticism and modulation. There is occasional divisi in the treble voices. Proper rehearsal for careful tuning is essential to the success of this motet." -Creator Magazine, Nov. 1993 [One of their select 20]

"For God so loved the world is unified and makes a cohesive statement of the text." -AAM Journal, February 1995

Description Martinson has taken the familiar passage from John 3:16-17 and created a tender motet that is expressive of the beauty and comfort given in these words from the Gospel of John.

Anthem text
For God so loved the world
that he gave his only Son,
that who e'er believes in him should not perish,
but have eternal life.

God sent his Son not to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
that who e'er believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Text: John 3:16-17
