You Are the Vine

By Joseph M. Martin

One of the most substantial object lessons in the New Testament is delivered in this epic composition. Moving slowly through many episodes, the anthem has moments of through-composed glory and yet is held together by common melodic and harmonic gestures described by the composer as “word painting representing the organic qualities of the vine motif.” Towering climaxes mingle with moments of deep expressiveness made all the more glorious by the new orchestration, adding an almost cinematic quality. Remarkable! Score and Parts (fl 1-2, ob, cl 1-2, bn, hn 1-2, tpt 1-3, tbn 1-3, tba, perc 1-2, timp, pno, hp, vn 1-2, va, vc, db) available as a digital download.
