Dear Lord Our Shining Star of Hope - SATB01502
Majestic anthem written for mixed chorus (SATB), about the Savior's role in our earthly existence - based on a Swedish folk melody. Requires a competent choir with especially high tenors and sopranos. Highest soprano note: G. Robert Cundick Jr. wrote:
Dad is of Swedish heritage (his mother was full-blooded) and this melody, which Dad originally arranged and published as an organ solo, has been very special to us for that reason. I enjoyed hearing him play it many times during my growing up years. In fact, it well may be his favorite, for it is the piece he chose to perform for his final Mormon Tabernacle Choir broadcast.
