Richard's setting of this, one of the earliest English prayers from the Sarum Primer of 1514, was written specifically for the 2022 London Festival of Contemporary Church Music.

It was first performed by the Choral Scholars of St Mary of the Angels, Bayswater, with Alastair Carey accompanying on the organ. A recording of the piece was part of the first LFCCM@Home Choral Evensong online broadcast in 2023, and can be heard here. It may be performed with or without organ accompaniment.
