For over 50 years, Robert Farrell has dedicated his life to composing music for the Church. A prolific composer and organist, Farrell now offers his first, full-length collection with OCP, which includes pieces published over the last decade.

While his music can be characterized as ecumenical, Farrell nevertheless chooses to set texts within the Catholic choral tradition, making this collection appropriate for liturgical use. The pieces are highly accessible for most choirs, and six of the anthems are offered with keyboard accompaniments, allowing musicians to opt for piano if an organ is unavailable.

Music directors are routinely finding Farrell’s music to be among their choir’s favorite works. With wonderful melodies supported by imaginative harmonic settings, Farrell fully explores each text, creating pieces for many liturgical moments.

Pieces for the entire year

  • With an evocative and exciting organ part, “Savior of the Nations, Come” features subtle text painting and interesting vocal writing — an ideal choice for the season of Advent.
  • Offering prominent organ, Farrell’s setting of “The Wexford Carol” is both simple and stirring. It serves as a wonderful addition to a choir’s Christmas repertoire.
  • “Remain in My Love,” a short, meditative choral anthem with verbatim setting of John 15:9–12, is scored for SAB choir and keyboard. With themes of discipleship and God’s love, it is especially appropriate for use during the Lenten and Easter seasons.
  • And lastly, “God Be in My Head” is a gentle prayer of yearning for use throughout the liturgical year. This flowing piece is set for SATB choir and keyboard.
