Commissioned Choral Anthem

To celebrate 60 years of generosity in support of music and the liturgical arts, the Anglican Foundation commissioned a new choral anthem in 2017, based on Psalm 9:1-2, by Ottawa composer and organist Nicholas Piper.

I Will Give Thanks to the Lord
(Anthem for SATB choir and organ)
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart.

I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

The composition is scored for SATB choir with organ accompaniment, suitable for parish choirs. It was premiered at Choral Evensong on Thursday, May 25 at and Holy Eucharist on Sunday, May 28 at Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver under the direction of Rupert Lang.

As of June 2018, the distribution rights of the choral anthem have returned to the composer. In order to request a pdf copy of the score, please contact Nicholas Piper by email at
