The style of this setting, with its fluid polyphonic lines, is something of a throwback to an earlier Anglican manner, but none the worse for that. For SATB with an optional organ part doubling the voices, the piece rises to a climax on the injunction to 'patiently suffer for the truth's sake' . Modest in its demands on the individual voices it is a piece that any ambitious parish choir might cope with successfully.
