Let Us Love

  • Duration: 3 minutes
  • Chorus: SATB
  • Instrumentation: Piano
  • Published by: Hawes Music

The piano in Let Us Love is not here merely to accompany and should be allowed to come to the fore.  A lilting melody is introduced against which the independent choral parts call for love to pervade all that we do.  A defiant middle section proclaiming that ‘no fear be known to us’ creates cohesion and contrast.  In essence, the piano writing creates the feeling of a dance – singers must be aware of this throughout so that their rhythms reinforce and interact with those of the piano, creating an overall atmosphere of joy and contentment.

In us:
Let no fear
Be known
To us.
