Give the king thy judgments, O God

John Rutter
Vocal score
In stock


for SATB, trumpet, and organ/orchestra
The second of two Rutter anthems celebrating the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, Give the king thy judgments, O God is a ceremonial work that draws upon the Book of Psalms alongside text written by the composer to create a suitably festive piece. Although the prevailing mood is jubilant, the closing pages provide a prayerful moment as Orlando Gibbon's gentle hymn tune Song 1 is interpolated to great effect. This anthem is featured on Rutter's highly-acclaimed CD The Gift of Life.
A trumpet in C part is included in the vocal score, and a B flat trumpet part is available separately.
