The words, "Surely thou hast tasted that the Lord is good," open the anthem. This gentle and lyrical section, marked by dialogue between the sections of the choir, unfolds and eventually reaches a climax on the words "precious in the sight of God." A quick, energetic and imitative middle section soon emerges to proclaim the words, "Come, and let yourselves be built, as living stones, into a spiritual temple." Here the spirit of medieval music, the building "stones" for Western music, is invoked. After the anthem’s primary climax is reached on the words "Jesus Christ," a solo soprano emerges from the choral texture to close this work with a serene "Amen."

"The first performance of Dan Locklair’s anthem, In the sight of God took place on Sunday 4 October 2009. The occasion was Dedication Sunday, and the text was selected by John Scott from The First Letter of Peter, vv 2-5. Professor Locklair has provided us with a delightful addition to our repertoire at St Thomas. The work is grateful to sing, well written for voices, lyrical in style with a well-crafted sense of architecture and climax. In every sense it is an enjoyable piece for the choir, quite approachable, and judging from the many positive comments I heard afterwards from members of the congregation, it was very well received."

-- Reflections on the premiere by John Scott, Director of Music, St. Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, New York, NY
