God be in my head (2021)
Anthem for SATB with organ or piano
Alan Bullard’s setting of God be in my head matches the well-known traditional text with a flowing, gradually climbing melody and colourful harmonies. The verse appears three times, firstly in unison, then in harmony, and finally with a soprano descant above the unison melody: the final phrase brings the choir together in harmony again, to form a calm and peaceful close.
Dedicated to the Rev. Mark Lowther on his retirement from the Alde Sandlings Benefice, Suffolk, and first performed by the united choirs of the Benefice in the church of St Peter and St Paul, Aldeburgh, conducted by the composer with Andrew Gosden, organ.
