This category includes anthems and shorter works that can be used for ritualistic parts of the church service, such as the opening words, meditation, prayer or benediction

Untoll the Bell

Inspired by the tolling of a bell to end meditation, this anthem asks the choir to reverse the process, to "untoll" the bell so that meditation may continue.  A tour de force for the choir.  This anthem would be appropriate for a sermon about meditation.  SATB, piano, bell in A.  Level of difficulty: High.  Duration: 3 min.

So Be It

A special benediction, perhaps for the end of the season or as a surprise.  Two versions available, SATB a cappella or with piano.  Level of difficulty: High a cappella, moderate with piano.  2 minutes.
