Composer: William Billings (1746 - 1800)
Forces: S.A.T.B. + reduction
Lyrics: Isaiah, ch. 1, v. 2-4, 16-18.
An anthem for fast day from Billings' Continental Harmony, 1794. The reduction should be reserved for rehearsal. I have attempted to preserve the differences in relative speed shewn in the original. Billings' own absolute tempi are well documented (generally a pulse of c. 60 per minute in this piece) but have been increased, more readily to accord with the modern audience's attention span.
