The Spring of the Water of Life is Howard Goodall’s jubilant anthem for SATB voices and organ. The music sets the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins and George Herbert (God’s Grandeur and The Flower respectively), as well as words from Revelation, culminating in a triumphant finale. A trumpet part is also available for download from fabermusicstore.com. The piece was commissioned by Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, to mark the 30th anniversary of Senior Pastor George A. Mason.
