English. English Folk Song. Song of Solomon 4:16.

It's easy to see why this beautiful setting of the English folksong Waly, Waly has long been a best-seller in the H.W. Gray catalog. The simplicity of the organ accompaniment combined with the opening and closing unison vocal verses frame the rich harmonies of the introspective third verse, imploring our Master, the Savior, to come. We are proud to bring you now this timeless classic in a new SAB setting.

    This is a great anthem. I have used it both for small choirs with limited resources and for more experienced choirs. It is basically a hymn anthem with one lush four part verse and the other verses mostly two part. very nice melodious accompaniment. I use it as a great...

    reserve anthem on a low Sunday. I have also used a flutist ( high school level) to play part of the anthem accompaniment instead of doing it all on the organ.
