A true singer’s text, this anthem describes the reason we sing and effectively articulates the sacred calling to music ministry. Lush melodic themes set the words to flight and the dramatic piano part has a colorful tonal vocabulary adding to the sweep of the anthem.
Based on verses from John’s gospel, this dramatic text asks and answers the question that has been voiced throughout the ages. The piano begins mysteriously and increases in intensity as the people finally ask, “Can this be the long-promised One?” Culminating in a triumphant major key that undergirds shouts of praise, Jesus is identified as God’s Son. A stirring addition to your Palm Sunday worship!

From a powerful poem of peace and victory by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, David Schwoebel has drafted a brilliant and uplifting new choral anthem. The melody rises with each textual phrase, “Good is stronger than evil, love more powerful than hate, victory through Him who loves us.” The message of peace through love is both ancient and current, and this anthem ties them together with beautiful music.
Here is a compelling new anthem with a text by R.G. Huff based on Ephesians 5:19 that celebrates the theme of music – giving witness to Jesus Christ with psalms, hymns and heart songs. Packed with calypso-like rhythms and an upbeat spirit, this David Schwoebel anthem builds to a final broadening refrain utilizing the familiar hymn tune, WYE VALLEY. Ideal for worship services on the themes of mission, music and stewardship. The Rhythm packet contains a Conductor’s Score and parts for Flute, Electric Bass & Percussion.
The sturdy tune STUTTGART provides the framework for this strong anthem of praise scored for optional handbells, organ and congregational participation in addition to SATB voices and piano. Beginning with a quietly confident melody, both melody and accompaniment continue to grow and build into a grand hymn tune and text, which includes a soaring soprano descant.
David Schwoebel has paired the Brian Wren text “This is a Day of New Beginnings” with the beloved St. Clement hymn tune in this lyrical arrangement for SATB choir and Organ with optional brass quintet and congregation. Printed in the score as an option for those who observe evensong is the original hymn text, “The Day Thou Gavest, Lord, Is Ended.” Usage of either of these long-standing hymn texts is sure to create a meaningful congregational worship experience!
