Verse anthem by Robert Hugill for choir and organ, setting English words from Psalm 24. May be sung by choir or choir and soli.

The other was a work by the conductor himself, who also furnished the tenor line in this concert: Robert Hugill's appealing anthem My Eyes are ever Turned unto the Lord is indeed a modern contribution to the tradition of the verse anthem; a setting of the Introit for the Third Sunday in Lent. The deft alternation of solo and tutti sections revealed real inspiration, the style - while not untouched by such modern masters as Pärt or Gorecki - seemed to be neither a hybrid nor a borrowing, but fresh and original, arguably with its own identifiable voice, and Hugill's work in no way paled in comparison with the Tudor pieces surrounding it. Originally composed for a wedding, this 21st century anthem is a beautifully turned, enticing piece of music which skilfully embraced a range of contrasting moods and contrived to say a good deal in a short space. This attractive, well-crafted piece certainly, in my book, deserves to be known more widely.

Roderick Dunnett, writing Music and Vision, 29 April 2007

My eyes are ever turned towards the Lord;
For he shall sustain me.
For he shall pluck my feet out of the snare:
Look thou upon me, have mercy on me, for I am alone and poor.
To thee have I lifted up my soul.
In the only God I put my trust.
Let me not be ashamed.
My eyes are ever turned towards the Lord;
For he shall sustain me.
For he shall pluck my feet out of the snare:
Look thou upon me, have mercy on me.
The troubles of my heart are enlarged:
O bring thou me out of my distresses.
Look upon mine affliction and my pain:
Look thou upon me, and forgive all my sins.
Consider mine enemies;
For they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
O Keep my soul, and deliver me.
To thee have I lifted up my soul.
In the only God I put my trust.
My eyes are ever turned towards the Lord;
For he shall sustain me.
For he shall pluck my feet out of the snare:
Look thou upon me, have mercy on me, for I am alone and poor.

Psalm 24
