An impressive setting of a beloved hymn that is not only a wonderful "change of pace" concert selection, it is also an outstanding composition for teaching expressive performance practices. Expressive, yet reverent, the introduction of this work leads into a lovely flute solo followed by a bold and glorious rendition of one of the most celebrated hymns of all time. As one would expect from this popular composer, the lush harmonies and tasteful scoring give it a sound that is quite impressive.
