John Prindle Scott's Come, Ye Blessed, arranged by Carl Deis for SATB choir with Organ accompaniment.
John Prindle Scott was an American singer, Vocal tutor and composer. Born in New York in 1877, he studied at Oberlin College, Ohio, between 1896-1900. He moved back to New York city before 1908 and later became a voice teacher in Saginaw, Michigan.
According to an article in the Syracuse American, "He had established a considerable reputation in concert work when he was forced by increasing deafness to turn to composition for musical expression."
Prindle Scott composed about 60 published songs between 1910 and 1930, including several prominent sacred works which have remained in the repertoire. Come, Ye Blessed takes its text from the Gospel of Matthew. It was first published by G. Schirmer in 1917. Alan J. Ord, author of Singer's Repertoire, described the piece as being a good choice for bass voices, calling it "ardent, with a flowing line".
