Moerane subtitles this work, ‘Anthem’, which could mean that it was written for a special occasion at his school or church. The words are loosely adapted from Psalm 105 of the Old Testament ‘Book of Psalms’. Moerane's setting is celebratory, with distinct inflections of Handel not only in the short, declamatory phrases, sequences, and fanfare-like motifs, but also in the use of Sarabande metre and the hint of a quote from ‘Lascia ch’io pianga’.
