Anthem text
God be in my head, and in my understanding;
God be in mine eyes, and in my looking;
God be in my mouth, and in my speaking;
God be in my heart, and in my thinking;
God be at mine end, and at my departing.

--Sarum Primer, 1558

review copy

Description David Ashley White’s expressive setting of the classic Sarum Primer text evokes the famous Walford Davies setting in its opening gesture, but moves to explore the text with White’s characteristic mixed-modal harmony. As always with White’s SAB pieces, the “absence” of a fourth part is never noticed.
