In this gorgeous new contemporary setting, the traditional text is set to an original melody, with each voice part taking a turn with the long legato phrases. The harmonies are lovely in this exceptionally well-composed piece. The flowing piano accompaniment enhances the vocal writing and an optional flute obbligato is available free online. Beautiful!

This fine anthem based around the Folliott S. Pierpoint hymn text bring a beautiful melody line, interesting harmonies, and a very nice direct change of key for the final verse. The piano part gently flows and perfectly supports and propels the choral parts in a way that leaves the listener enthralled and the choir begging to sing it again and again. Suitable for youth and adult choirs, it is very teachable and will fit nicely in any Thanksgiving service or concert as well as for general use. Highly recommended.

The Bottom Line

Pros
This is a fine anthem utilizing the time-honored Folliott S. Pierpoint hymn text with a beautiful melody line and interesting harmonies.
