The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble

Composer: Blow, John
Period: Baroque
Voices: SATB
Language: English
Instrumentation: A cappella

John Blow, also known as 'Dr. Blow' wrote more than 100 anthems in his lifetime. We present you one of them. In this setting of three verses of psalm 20, Blow shows his mastery in text expression. One of the interesting aspects, is the sudden time-value change in the middle of the piece, giving it two different atmospheres in one composition.

Learn more about this composition by looking at the video below.
