SATB - With text based on Psalm 46:10, this Mary McDonald anthem offers the tender admonition to be still and know that I am God balanced with the quiet promise of the gift of peace. Scored for SATB with piano accompaniment, this beautiful anthem is well within the reach of the average church choir and is suitable for any occasion in worship.

"Be Still" is a comforting, tender composition which helps the singer find the quiet place in her/his heart. Tender, relaxed, and flowing, this anthem is a fresh and compelling setting of the Psalm 46:10 passage which is so badly needed in the 21st Century.

Coming from Mary, you would expect the piano accompaniment to be robust and grand. It is. Suitable for adults or students, this anthem also wears well in the combined choir setting. We believe your singers will enjoy both rehearsing and performing this beauty.

The Bottom Line
