Jesus, Refuge of the Weary published by Beckenhorst

Beckenhorst has published Timothy Shaw’s SATB anthem, “Jesus, Refuge of the Weary,” which also received an Editors’ Choice Award from JW Pepper. You can view sample pages here and listen to an excellent demo recording here. Here is how Pepper describes the piece:

This beautiful music for SATB voices and piano is set to the text of Girolamo Savonarola. Suitable for Lent or general use, “Jesus, Refuge of the Weary” is a heartfelt plea to our Saviour that we become evermore mindful of His sacrifice for us on the cross. “Jesus, may our hearts be burning with more fervent love for you; may our eyes be ever turning to behold your cross anew.” A stunning work.
