The lyrical setting of this text from the Book of John reaffirms the world’s need to love one another, a message as relevant now as it was then. Straightforward vocal parts are supported by an organ accompaniment, which can also be adapted for piano. This anthem, scored for SATB choir with keyboard accompaniment, sets the familiar text from John 13:34-35, offering a reflective, yet affirmative addition to the choral repertoire. The lyrical vocal parts are supported by a flowing accompaniment; although originally written for organ, it can be easily adapted for piano. The text encourages us, as disciples ourselves, to reaffirm our love for one another, and in a world of such change and uncertainly, the message is as relevant now as it was then.
