Sanford’s introduction to “Bless Us, Lord, with Your Peace”
It’s funny where inspiration comes from. One day, in 2006, while changing music out of the choir folders at St. Gregory’s, I was looking at a piece that set Psalm 67 in the King James translation; “God be merciful to us, and bless us.” That work opens with an ascending scale. At the same time I was reminded of the delightful, contemporary translation of the psalm by Stephen Mitchell. These two thoughts came together in my anthem Bless us, Lord, with Your Peace, scored for five-part choir.
