Description - Every Purpose Under the Heaven (Vocal Score) by Howard Goodall
Every Purpose under the Heaven is a musical tribute to one of the most important cultural landmarksof the Western civilisation - the 1611 King James Bible. Written in celebration of the Bible's 400- year anniversary, Goodall has brought together ten of the most expressive passages, from Genesis to Revelation, to create an oratorio that is at once steeped in historic grandeur and utterly relevant in today's society. Musically, it displays all the hallmarks of Goodall's well-loved style - soaring melodies, rhythmic vitality and perfectly crafted lines. However, this work offers singers and audiences something more: an opportunity to introduce new generations to the expressive power and ancient truths of this historic text. Commissioned as a gift to the United Learning Trust, Every purpose under the heaven is suitable for young singers, choral societi es and church choirs of all abilities. It may be accompanied by piano, using the reduction provided, or chamber orchestra.
