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 104, v.31-35

The glory of the Lord shall endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works.
He looketh on the earth and it trembleth: He toucheth the hills and they smoke.
I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will praise my God while I have my being.
My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord.
Let sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more: bless thou the Lord, O my soul, praise the Lord.
