Alan's rich text speaks of Mary, the chosen one, faithful disciple, blessed among women, and pure in heart.  Alan also composed this compelling musical setting for a recent commission.  Thy lyrical melody is supported by organ and brass.  In the absence of the brass instruments the accessible organ accompaniment in verse 1 may be used for the entire piece.  Verse 2 works wonderfully well as the choir sings the Latin words Beati mundo corde ("Blessed are pure in heart") while the assembly and cantor continue singing the meoldy.  Verses 3 and 4 feature brass quartet accompaniment as the melody is sung in unison.  The final verse utilizes the choir singing the mantra-like phrase Ave Beata ("Hail, Blessed One") beneath the cantor and assembly melody.  Assemblies will enjoy playing their essential role in the full version of "By God Kept Pure".
