This pairing of modern tune and text has found wide use for a number of years. The chant-like character of Richard Dirksen's tune INNISFREE FARM is skillfully captured in this setting of Anne LeCroy's text, which incorporates themes commonly associated with Evening Prayer. The chant-like melody of this tune is beautifully captured in this setting. Reproducible page for congregation included in the choir score. Handbells (3 octaves-8 bells) play from choir score. Instrumental part for either Clarinet or Oboe available separately.
