The Blessing Riddle
Arr. Pepper Choplin
2-Part Mixed (with Opt. Congregation)
Simply stunning! Pepper Choplin has combined the traditional folk melody commonly known as The Riddle Song (I Gave My Love a Cherry) with new lyrics that convey the promise of Christ's peace. The gently flowing accompaniment beautifully complements the transparent choral texture. An extended amen provides the perfect close to an anthem of transcendent simplicity. As an added bonus, a reproducible songsheet for choir and/or congregation offers an alternate benediction text. Certain to become a favorite of choir and congregation alike!
