Pure, pristine harmonies reflect the simple desires of this prayer. Yet as the yearnings intensify with each verse, so do the textures and tone colors of this wonderful a cappella arrangement. The third verse, in particular, has some fabulous dissonances and rhythmic effects. “Nearer, My God, to Thee” is lovely and very moving.

    This arrangement is genius. I would highly recommend this version of a beautiful traditional Lowell Mason hymn to any top choir. Setting needs a soprano section with the ability to nuance phrasing as the intervals are a bit challenging but makes for an explosive effect. Innovative look at a classic...

    song. Teached dynamics in a wonderful way.
