Commissioned for the congregation and choir of St Francis Church, Simon’s Town, South Africa, this beautiful choral work by Howard Goodall sets a moving text attributed to St. Francis of Assisi. Combining Goodall’s trademark lyricism with a striking trumpet countermelody and accessible organ accompaniment, Promises of grace exhibits all the features that Goodall’s music is so loved for. This work is an ideal choice for both professional and amateur choirs and is suitable for services and concerts.
