Review quote

They are addressed to the deceased, starting 'Rest thou, rest, and away with all sorrow', and concluding 'Rest, O beloved, in the God of Life!', which limits their use to funerals, or memorial services or services of thanksgiving. But for such services this is a haunting and gentle piece . . . This is a fine anthem that I look forward to hearing when it is appropriate. * Church Music Quarterly March 2005 *show more
