I wrote this set of variations as a recital piece and it has been performed that way several times. It also works well in church as a prelude, special music, or part of a 'Lessons and Carols' service. The quality of distance in the tune I Wonder As I Wander made setting it a joyful and meditative experience. I wove the Shape Note tune Exultation from The Southern Harmony into the texture.
