CoverBlessing in the Leaving [level: Medium]
Susan LaBarr: Bio and other works | Jo-Michael Scheibe Choral Series
voicing: SATB div. | catalog number: SBMP 1241 | duration: 4:15 | price: $2.40
accompaniment: a cappella

Retirement, remembrance, gratitude, the text fits them all. With musical elaboration on the word love, this is especially appropriate when honoring a person. As always, the composer treats each vocal line with great care so all feel central to the piece.

In the leaving
in the letting go
let there be this
to hold onto
at the last:
the enduring of love
the persisting of hope
the remembering of joy
the offering of gratitude
the receiving of grace
the blessing of peace.
