May Christ Support Us

Michael Joncas, John Henry Newman

This beautiful anthem is a succinct setting of one of Cardinal Newman’s prayers. Ideal as a post-Communion reflection, the score is structured to allow either a simple SATB rendition or a fuller setting using SSAATBB divisi. Short melismas, slow triplets, and tied figures impart speech-like rhythms to the piece despite remaining in 4/4 throughout. This song is especially appropriate on All Saints/All Souls, as a response to the Word of God at Evening Prayer or Night Prayer, at celebrations of the Anointing of the Sick, or at funerals.
