author of text
Book of Common Prayer

St Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue, sustains a fine choir of boys and men, and it was for these forces and their conductor John Scott that Briggs wrote O Lord, support us in 2005. Commissioned by the then Assistant Organist Jeremy Bruns for his wife Kathy, this setting of an exquisite evening collect from the Book of Common Prayer is a tender wash of unashamed loveliness.

Saint Thomas Church, sur la cinquième avenue, au cœur du commerce grouillant de Manhattan, abrite un bon chœur de garçons et d’hommes, et ce fut pour lui et son chef John Scott que Briggs rédigea O Lord, support us, en 2005. Commandée par Jeremy Bruns, alors Assistant Organist, pour sa femme Kathy, cette mise en musique d’une exquise collecte vespérale tirée du Book of Common Prayer est un tendre lavis de beauté éhontée.

St Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue hat einen ausgezeichneten Männer- und Knabenchor und für diesen Klangkörper sowie seinen Dirigenten John Scott schrieb Briggs O Lord, support us im Jahr 2005. Dieses Werk wurde von dem damaligen Stellvertretenden Organisten Jeremy Bruns für seine Frau Kathy in Auftrag gegeben und ist eine exquisite Vertonung eines Abendgebetes aus dem Book of Common Prayer. Es ist von zarter und maßloser Schönheit.
