Suitable for use during Passiontide (the period immediately before Easter, when Christians focus on the Crucifixion of Jesus), it is an arrangement of the American Spiritual melody for 2 voices, and adaptable for use by many different combinations to suit your singers.

Easter Anthems

Easter Anthems


Easter Anthems The Easter Anthems are traditionally sung at Mattins during Eastertide, but are equally suitable for being sung at any other service during that time. This is a setting to a single Anglican Chant with the text pointed accordingly. More information…

If you are looking for something more substantial for a Lent or Passiontide service, then you may be interested in looking at Teach me, O Lord which places more demands on the singers and organist. It was first performed in Salisbury Cathedral in Passiontide 2011, on the day that The Right Reverend Nicholas Holtam was announced as the new Bishop of Salisbury, and sung in front of the entire Chapter and packed cathedral during Evensong.

Recorded in Canterbury Cathedral on Thursday 29th March 2012, sung by the choir of St Stephen’s Church, Canterbury.
