To Extol Theee

To Extol Thee is a recent work for solo soprano, SATB choir (no divisions) and organ (or piano), settings of six poems by George Herbert lasting 14 minutes.

The idiom is straight-forwardly tuneful (‘I can’t believe it’s not Rutter’!), and relatively easy. It suits all types of choir.

All of the movements are suitable for use as separate anthems. The four movements that are not solos are also available in a version for SA.

There are no recordings or videos available at present – watch this space.

The movements are


  1. The God of Love
  2. Love (solo)
  3. The Elixir
  4. Ling of Glory
  5. Virtue (solo)
  6. Antiphon (Let all the world in every corner sing)
