When Jesus Was a Growing Lad
This anthem, subtitled "Jesus in the Temple," was commissioned in memory of a dedicated children's music teacher. It's for unison or two-part choir with optional descant and keyboard, optional flute and 3 octaves of handbells. The bells ring solid and arpeggiated chords in the latter half of the piece. The chorus states: Trust me! Trust me! I am about my Father's business. Trust me! Trust me! My Father's work must still be done.
