David Ashley White's interpretation of selected verses from Philippians 3 is satisfying and memorable. As with much of his work, it sounds much more difficult than it is: the choral parts are natural and well-crafted, and the independent organ part, though significant, is not demanding. The result is an anthem which will reward performers and worshippers alike.

Anthem text
I press on toward the goal
for the prize of the upward call
of God in Jesus Christ.

Our commonwealth is in heaven,
and from it we await a Savior,
the Lord our Christ,
who will change our lowly body
to be like his glorious body,
by the power which enables him
even to subject all things to himself.

I press on toward the goal
for the prize of the upward call
of God in Jesus Christ.

--Philippians 3:14, 20, 21
