Exploring 60 of God's Creatures Through Music
"Benedicite" or "Bless the Lord" is a choir composition by Andrew Carter. He set the hymn from "The Book of Common Prayer." It was commissioned for the 1989 Singing Day in Edinburgh by the British Federation of Young Choirs. Carter, an English composer and church musician in York, was inspired by the restoration of roof bosses at the southern transept of York Minster, which had been destroyed bt fire in 1984. They depict around 60 images of creatures. The music is written to convey a child-like perspective of the wonders of Creation. On Sunday, October 13 at 4 pm, the piece will be sung with the organ and the IPC Choir.
