Bond was one of the pillars of mid-eighteenth century musical life in Coventry (as organist of the church that was to become the Cathedral) and Birmingham. His "Six Anthems in score", 1769 were sufficiently popular to run to six editions. They were written for parishes with organ, (the bass line is also figured) but the composer's directions imply that they could also be performed unaccompanied.

Lyrics: Psalm 51, v.1,3,7, 8, 10-12, 15

Have mercy upon me, O God, after thy great goodness: according to the multitude of thy mercies do away mine offences.
For I acknowledge my faults: and my sin is ever before me.
Thou shalt purge me, and I shall be clean: thou shalt wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Thou shalt make me hear of joy and gladness: that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
Make me a clean heart, O God: and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away: and take not thy holy Spirit from me.
O give me the comfort of thy help again: and stablish me with thy free Spirit.
Thou shalt open my lips, O Lord: and my mouth shall shew thy praise.

Capel Bond
(1730 - 1790)

Have mercy upon me, O God

(S.A.T.B.Kbd.)
