Description

for SATB and piano The traditional Gaelic text of this peaceful Benediction invokes a religious and earthly theme: Deep peace of the running wave, the flowing air, the quiet earth, the shining stars, the gentle night, and God be with you. Certainly appropriate for general church services throughout the liturgical year, the vocal lines of this anthem are well written and accessible for any church SATB choir. The piano part features gentle running eight-note arpeggios which set a nice reflective tone.show more

Review quote

While most of the vocal writing is in unison, there is some division into SATB on the last page. With only this small amount of part-writing, the setting provides an excellent learning opportunity for a choir at the stage of gaining confidence singing in parts, movement is largely stepwise and the harmonies are rewarding. * Tom Wiggall, Music Teacher, 1 December 07 *show more
