The Craftsman

Suitably adorned with a rich, varied accompaniment for the organist, The Craftsman, commissioned by the Royal Academy of Arts in London, is a substantial work, where an unusual text from Ecclesiasticus is set in a most invigorating style for SATB and organ.

The sun that giveth light looketh upon all things,
and the work thereof is full of the glory of the Lord.
When he marked out the foundation of the
earth, then I was the Craftsman at his side.
I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence.
