Let Us Remember – SATB Setting 2 (Copy)

This is a SATB setting of the phrase “Let us remember that we are in Holy Presence of God.” It is based on a simple melody that became the basis of a choral setting, one that went through two iterations by two different composers. As such, it is a collaborative Lasallian effort.

It may be used to begin prayer services at schools, school events, choral concerts, or other settings where a short, reflective choral piece would be an asset.

Composers: Br. George Van Grieken, FSC; Otto Wild: Br. Martin Yribarren, FSC

Let Us Remember – Octavo for Choir

This is a setting of a popular invocation of the Lasallian prayer: “Let us remember that we are in the Holy Presence of God.” The setting is arranged for four voices (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) and simple to learn. Nevertheless, the harmonies are rich and complex. It is a great piece for choirs in Lasallian schools to us at their liturgies, prayer services, or as a prayer for Lasallian events.
