By Mark Blankenship
"O for a thousand tongues to sing my great Redeemer's praise." Charles Wesley's well-loved text has been set in a fresh, new way by Mark Blankenship. Opening with a driving and rhythmic accompaniment, the beginning phrase bursts with energy and movement but eventually slows to a calmer tempo to match the calmer sentiments in the text. The piece picks up momentum, driving to a glorious conclusion. A wonderful addition to your choir's repertoire!
