This short setting was written at the request of a choral colleague for a ladies choir in Fiji that she had had involvement with on visits to the country. The text is from the Afro-American tradition of spirituals and the music suggests that style of musical setting. Bow low, Mary is dedicated to the singers of the Nasereci Ladies Choir of Namaka, Fiji.
