Review quote

IF 7/8 time appeals, you could do far worse than to investigate this engaging setting of Wesley's beloved hymn-text. * The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians, May 2009 * A bright and lively piece that shouldn't pose too many problems for most choirs . . . A singable anthem, and an accessible central piece suitable for a festival or feast day. * Jonathan Wikeley, Music Teacher, June 09 *show more
