Another of Eric Nelson's sensitive hymn settings. The composer's treatment of this much-loved piece shows the respect and love that these tunes hold for many. The choral writing brings out the most in the choir and each part is equally interesting.

    What makes this piece so effective is the piano accompaniment. It's a beautiful counterpoint to an old familiar hymn: spare and enriching at the same time. Beware, however, that the piano doesn't cue or support the vocal parts much at all. The soprano/alto countermelody in the middle...

    can be a bit challenging for that reason. I love the quote in the tenor/bass part from "My Shepherd Will Supply My Need" before the final statement of the melody, and also the quiet, contemplative ending which uses only the women.
