Where shall wisdom be found? gives liturgical form to the search for wisdom, for it is through prayer that our search finds its most eloquent expression.
As well as RSCM Festival Services, it lends itself to accompany important decision-making moments in the church community, or a means by which the church could pray for a national or global situation. The service has been devised by James Steven (Academic Dean at Sarum College), Adrian Lucas (Head of Choral Studies, RSCM) and Tim Ruffer (Head of Publishing, RSCM).
The book includes works by Lennox Berkeley, Herbert Brewer, Harold Darke, Grayston Ives, Peter Moger and Will Todd, as well as a specially commissioned Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis for Unison Voices by Philip Wilby. There is also a thread of Plainchant running through the service that could allow for a very simple liturgy using the church’s most ancient music.
Where shall wisdom be found? includes a wide selection of hymns and songs, and a choice of choral items suitable for full SATB choir as well as those with more limited resources. Equally suitable for Area Festivals performed by hundreds and for smaller local services, this book offers a treasure store for use on many occasions.
