Item Number: WL.008340

This contemporary Lenten gathering rite by John sets Alan Hommerding's hymn "From Ashes to the Living Font" as its verses, and is strengthened by Ed Bolduc's fine keyboard arrangement. The stepwise motion in the verses is intuitive; the refrain changes character as the tune outlines fifths and sixths, emphasizing the words "return to God." Your singers will enjoy the three-part chordal writing. The penitential rite is cleverly included as the bridge section and incorporates the same melodic outline in the contrasting parallel minor. The refrain returns in the original key to conclude the piece.
