Composer: Craig Courtney

Edition: BP 071-1
Craig Courtney is a master of reviving life and energy into familiar arrangements and new compositions. “Mercy” begins with simple melodies between SA and TB voices – as the score progresses, vocal texture becomes increasingly more challenging and harmonically more interesting. This anthem is perfect for Lent or general liturgical use. My high school singers LOVED this song – allowing singers with ample opportunity to sing lyrically and expressively.
Description: This is a standard, an especially well-suited statement of faith to sing for Reformation and Confirmation services. We generally use brass quintet with piano or organ.
