Benediction: Vocal score
By

Rating
for SATB and piano The traditional Gaelic text of this peaceful Benediction invokes a religious and earthly theme: Deep peace of the running wave, the flowing air, the quiet earth, the shining stars, the gentle night, and God be with you. Certainly appropriate for general church services throughout the liturgical year, the vocal lines of this anthem are well written and accessible for any church SATB choir. The piano part features gentle running eight-note arpeggios which set a nice reflective tone.

About the Author

Don Michael Dicie has been fond of spirituals, folk songs, and plainsong since he began music lessons in elementary school in Birmingham, Alabama. During his formal music training, he developed his main musical interests of music theory and composition while studying with William Baxter and Hugh Thomas. From 1966 to 1972, he was the organist and choir director at the Cathedral of St. Paul, Minnesota. From 1973 to 1994, Dicie taught reading and vocal music in Nashville public schools and, from 1976 to 1994, was organist and choir director at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Franklin, Tennessee. He then served as organist and Church Music Director at Trinity United Methodist Church, Franklin, Tennessee. In January 2005, Dicie returned to St. Paul's Episcopal Church where he is currently the organist and composer in residence.

Reviews

'While most of the vocal writing is in unison, there is some division into SATB on the last page. With only this small amount of part-writing, the setting provides an excellent learning opportunity for a choir at the stage of gaining confidence singing in parts, movement is largely stepwise and the harmonies are rewarding.' Tom Wiggall, Music Teacher, 1 December 07
