Inspired by the beloved nineteenth-century text "Watchman, Tell Us of the Night," Mark Hayes has composed new music that is reflective, yet powerful, with strokes of musical brilliance. The choir opens softly in unison before a full-textured, "a cappella" section. As the keyboard reenters, the final stanza gives another opportunity for artistic ebb and flow before calming into a marvelous, quiet ending.
