    I heard this piece being sung on television. It was one of the most beautiful pieces I have heard. The melody is haunting and the words are beautiful. I have been very pleased with the music I bought.

  • October 04, 2007 One of the very best hymns

    I had the opportunity to sing this wonderful hymn in a choir of about 60 who had a gifted organist and 2 flute and violin players. But the director was who brought it all together in a hymn that moved our entire audience to tears. It remains one of my...

    favorites. It was challenging but the end result was very rewarding.

  • June 22, 2007 Jesu, the Very Thought is Sweet

    This is an absolutely amazing piece arranged by Mac Wilberg. I used it for a large area conference with a choir of about 60. The organ part was beautiful and two flutes added an extra special touch. It was very accessible to put together in 2 rehearsals.
