    This piece is not as well known as some of John Rutter's more popular selections (such as "A Gaelic Blessing") but is an excellent example of his style - very melodic, some mild 20th century elements, very grateful writing for the voice with careful voice leading. There are some breif...

    moments of drama with an exciting middle section (with 5/8, etc.) but the overall mood is generally calming and lyrical. The featured solo part for clarinet is excellent and adds a haunting tone color. It requires an advanced player. The opening clarinet theme may remind you of the theme from "The Young and Restless". The text can be a bit "wordy", but the melodies are very lovely. The vocal writing is not as difficult as it may at first seem as there a many sections in unison or two part writing. A very good choice for your choir.
