Croft : O Israel, trust in the Lord : Printable cover page
Composer: William Croft (1678 - 1727)
Forces: S.A.T.B. + reduction
Lyrics: Psalm 130, vv. 7,8
Edition prepared from "Harmonia coelestis or The Harmony of Heaven imitated" (anthology, London, pub. 1780). This version is considerably simplified from its initial appearance in Croft's Harmonia sacra, in order to prove useful in country parishes. The arranger (probably the publisher) has detached the final chorus from Croft's extended verse anthem, doubled the note values, ironed out rhythms and harmonies, and attached an Hallelujah of unidentified provenance. This piece does not therefore represent Croft's work for St Paul's, but more the style in which his work was disseminated through the provinces in later Georgian England.
