This one almost gives you double your money, because the highly developed “Alleluia” that begins and ends this piece totally stands on its own and has countless uses in worship. But in the middle, there's a motet-like section on the text “God is our refuge and strength . . . we shall not fear.” It, too, could stand on its own. But put it all together and it is a strong a cappella choral anthem that would be at home in any tradition.
