God is gone up, Op 27 No 2

composer
1951; specially composed for St Cecilia's Service at St Sepulchre's Church, Holborn, 1951
author of text
from 'Preparatory' (or 'Sacramental') 'Meditations'

 
God is gone up is the second of Finzi's three opus 27 anthems. It was written in 1951 for a St Cecilia's Day Service at St Sepulchre's Church in Holborn. This well-written anthem of praise, which, like Bairstow's works, stretches the organ's resources, carefully sets the inspirational words taken from the Preparatory Meditations by the Puritan poet Edward Taylor (c1642-1729).
