In 1996, I undertook to write a musical called The Last Word for the Festival Singers under the directorship of Guy Jansen. I shared the job with a fellow member of the choir Felicia Edgecombe. The show ran over several nights at Queen Margaret College hall in Thorndon Wellington and explored the words of Jesus and the impact these had on his contemporaries and today. The solo version of this song was well received and called for a choral arrangement. It is an accessible homophonic piece in 6/8 time in F major modulating finally to D major. It is useful as an anthem, part of a service or concert piece.
