The Bob Chilcott (nothing to do with the Iraq War enquiry) “God So Loved the World’ is a brilliant motet for Lent.

It can be sung in unison if you don’t have the resources to sing in parts – you just need one reasonably strong singer for the Soprano Solo. It is less well known than the Stainer ‘God So Loved the World’ so the congregation are less likely to know if you sing the wrong notes – always advantageous…
It can be found in the Ash Wednesday to Easter for Choirs book. Published by Oxford University Press
Note to our Choir – We are singing it this Sunday!
