The Strife is O\’er

Two interesting performances of \’The Strife is O\’er\’ took place in California during April. The chamber choir Ensemble XXI directed by Jeffrey H Rickard included the anthem in a service of Choral Evensong for Eastertide which took place in the chapel of Redlands University, and the combined choirs of St Thomas More Oceanside and St Patrick Catholic Community Carlsbad also included the anthem in their Spring Sing. The choirs were directed by Douglas Lynn and Kathleen O\’Brien.
