Gwyneth Walker - A Prayer of Compassion


SATB divisi

Accompaniment:      SATB
Composer:      Gwyneth Walker
Music series:      Schirmer Choral Series
Music Category:      Choral
Item Code:      8730

Sound File:      


This is a prayerful, homophonic setting of texts from three sources: Psalms 4:8, Psalms 5:8, and the final line from John Greenleaf Whittier's "Divine Compassion." Set for SATB chorus (divisi) unaccompanied, the music is approachable and sensitive. Moments of reflection give way to moments of grandness, "Only by your Grace, not by my merit, no praise be mine." The piece ends quietly, "Let me keep a heart that still can feel, and eyes that still can weep." In today's world, a prayer for us to remain sensitive to suffering is never out of place. Duration: 1:45
