Fred Pratt Green's text, For the Fruit of All Creation, begins with traditional Thanksgiving themes but then goes beyond that, gradually incorporating themes of stewardship, interdependence, and ecological responsibility. Russel Schulz-Widmar has set these words to the traditional Welsh melody AR HYD Y NOS, arranged for SAB choir and six handbells. The music begins simply and builds gently as the text unfolds.

This Thanksgiving/stewardship anthem is a rare combination of SAB choral writing with a minimal handbell accompaniment. For this reason, the SAB choir will need to be skilled and confident enough to deal with the a cappella feel of this piece. A niche piece looking for the right choir, this might be just what you're looking for.

The Bottom Line

Pros
A rare find: SAB with handbell accompaniment.
Cons
Simple parts, but not simply taught.
