Accompanied Anthems




Blessing – Dennis Northway


Composed in July of 1995, this is dedicated to the choirs of

Grace Episcopal Church, Oak Park, IL for SSATB and organ and is

setting of the traditional Irish text.  It is brief, arid and haunting.



May the raod rise up to meet you, may the wind be always at your back;

may the sunshine on your face and the rains fall soft upon your fields.

‘Til we meet again may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
