Duration: 1 min.
Dedication: for Rupert Gough and the Choral Scholars of Royal Holloway, University of London, with infinite thanks
O Lord, Increase My Faith (2007) was written as a gift for the choir of Royal Holloway, University of London and its director, Rupert Gough. The work was composed immediately after returning home to the USA from the recording sessions for their disc of my sacred choral music (Naxos 8.559361).
O Lord, increase my faith. Strengthen and confirm me in thy true faith; endue me with wisdom, charity, and patience in my adversity. Sweet Jesu, say Amen.
