The well-known text is paired with an original melody in this lovely new setting. An elegant piano accompaniment adds to the rhapsodic nature of the piece in this fresh and interesting treatment. The work explores a variety of choral textures before ending quietly on a perfect unison. Absolutely beautiful!

This new, interesting and lyrical setting of this beloved text will be immediately a favorite for youth or adult choirs. The lush harmonies are well-written and will not be challenging to the average church choir, but special attention will want to be paid to unified timbres within the sections to reach this anthem's full potential. The exceptionally beautiful accompaniment perfectly supports and enhances the most dramatic moments as well as the quietest subtleties until the choir ends peacefully in a single true unison pitch. This piece will become a perennial favorite of choir and audience alike, and simply must be experienced to be fully appreciated.
