SATB: with Clarinet
Thanks so much to all who responded. I had some very good suggestions
from some very helpful and knowledgeable musicians. Note that I have
not had the chance to review any of this music to date, but these
include actual clarinet parts which do not have to be transposed! Most
are SATB but a few are available for SAB. Hope this list of music helps

Thank you all for your responses. Here is a compilation of the responses I
received regarding my request for SATB anthems w/Clarinet:
6 of you suggested Rutter's "The Lord is My Light and My Salvation"
> John Rutter's setting of Psalm 27 is absolutely stunning, and has a
> demanding clarinet part. Highly recommended!
> A Babe is Born David Young
> As Pants the Hart for Cooling David Herman (SAB)
> Be Filled with the Spirit Craig Courtney
> O Sacred Head, No Wounded Robert Leaf
> Remember This Bob Burroughs
> "Be Filled with the Spirit", Craig Courtney, Beckenhorst Press
> I have done a piece called "Ose Shalom" with John Leavitt as the arranger.
> It has a very haunting Clarinet part that goes with the SATB chorus. I have
> used this piece at a public University (Cal State Hayward) and a public High
> School. However, I think this piece would be appropriate in the right
> setting in most Christian churches as well as Jewish Synagogues. I am a
> member of an Evangelical Free Church and have a background in both the
> Presbyterian and Southern Baptist churches. This piece when placed
> appropriately would be great in any of my past churches.
> A new one by Larry Shackley Of the Father's Love Begotten pub. by Hope.
>I have composed an anthem called "Flesh Clings". This is an anthem for SATB
> chorus accp. with clarinet.
> From All That Dwell Below the Skies by Everett Reed.
> Hodie Christus natus est, by Karl Henning
> for choir and clarinet. It will shortly be in
> production at Lux Nova Press.
