Bennett : Inspired by fire prophetic, Isaiah said : Score, part(s) and cover page
Composer: William Bennett (fl.1770 - 1775)
Lyrics: Edward Spray M.D. of Totnes
William Bennett is believed to have practised as a singing teacher in Combeinteignhead, South Devon, throughout the 1770's. His extant published collection had an extensive subscription list, with a strong local flavour: "A New set of Psalm Tunes and Anthems, in four Parts, for the Use of Country Choirs: with an Introduction to Music: by William Bennett. Exeter: printed for the Author, and sold by Edward Score, Bookseller, and James Wallis in Plymouth. Exeter. Printed by R. Trewman behind the Cathedral." c.1770.
"Country Choirs" is a term often used to mean choirs in parish churches and proprietary chapels, as yet without an organ installed. Other instruments were employed instead (particularly 'cello or bassoon to reinforce the bass). This piece requires a bass instrument both to accompany the recitative and to reinforce the chorus line; its use in the verse sections (doubling the bass singer) is optional.
