Blessed Are the Pure In Spirit – Soprano & Strings
I wrote this little piece in a week, as an offering to my Home Church who were
creating different original gifts – based on Matthew 5:3-10, to give to the members of the group at the following meeting. It sets each verse of the Beatitudes, simply as a mood and feeling about each blessing. There is therefore a feeling of change with every idea, which may feel a bit hurried. But it is, essentially a prayer and a response to the words of Jesus as reported directly by Matthew in his Gospel. This version is a string quartet/orchestra settings; with separate parts for strings available.
