Description

for SATB and harp or piano In this arrangement of the traditional Irish hymn Be thou my vision, Rutter sets the 8th-century text (in its English translation) to the Irish folk melody known as Slane, the tune to which it has been sung since 1919. Rutter's harmonies and piano/harp accompaniment add to the enchanting Gaelic style. An alternative setting of the same text, to original music by John Rutter, is also available from Oxford University Press.show more
