An immediate best-seller when it was published. An easy anthem for SATB with organ, plus optional flute and oboe. The music has a haunting simplicity with a flowing tune over a gently rocking accompaniment.
"The words make this an attractive anthem to sing on most occasions, but would, I believe, be ideal for the services of Holy Communion, Evensong and Evening Prayer, in the Anglican and Protestant serives, and Mass and Compline in the Roman Catholic rite. Quiet, reflective, and pleaseant to sing." - Henry Howell, Australian Music Teacher Sept 03
