A house of prayer: parts set for string quartet ed.

Publisher: LAH Publications

Catalogue Number: LAH 35-3

Year: 2018

For: SATB with String Quartet

Duration: 4:45

This score is a set of parts for the string quartet.

This is a very accessible work written for St Thomas the Apostle Anglican Church and Kurt Ala-Kantti Director of Music, on the occasion of the 60th Anniversary of the Church and the 90th Anniversary of the Parish. The text from Isaiah 56:7, “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all people” returns throughout the piece as a refrain, and this refrain lends itself well to congregational participation when used in a church service (reproducible refrain available inside the score). Originally for choir and piano, the choir with string quartet version was commissioned by Harmonia Choir of Ottawa, directed by Kurt Ala-Kantti.

Text

From Isaiah 56:7 and “A prayer for those who serve God in the world” by Anon.

Isaiah 56:7

My house shall be called a house of prayer for all people.

A prayer for those who serve God in the world

May God take our feet where they need to go.
May He give us hands that readily reach out to others,
May he give us ears to hear the silent cries of another,
May He draw our eyes to see their needs
May he give us hearts to reach out to them.
May we bring God to them in our own unique way.
