The Beatitudes of Jesus, found in the Gospel of Matthew, are some of the most beloved verses in all of Holy Scripture. Roberta Rowland-Raybold has composed nine short pieces, each one a lyrical and beautiful musical reflection on one of these blessings. These pieces can be used individually as service voluntaries (preludes, offertories, communion music, interludes, meditations, and funeral music). They could also be used in a special meditative service (perhaps during Lent), interweaving them with readings from scripture.
