I like to write new settings of familiar hymn texts. This text is very special for the friend this is dedicated to.
The text lends itself to quite an English folksong-style tune and harmony. The accompaniment reflects the relaxed nature. Unison voices creates a sense of strength whilst the harmony verse adds interest and each part is given an interesting line, the descant in the final verse capping the piece well. I wrote it to be accessible and flexible.
