Composed in 1983, the text would also work well for Epiphany or a Christmas concert or pageant. The opening melodic ideas are captivating and beguilingly simple and build almost unnoticeably in complexity and intensity. The choir director will do well to allow adequate rehearsal time for some of the melodic surprises toward the middle of the piece. This piece is superbly singable, and brings out the best in the sound of the choir. Ranges are not difficult. The piece is only moderately difficult. Accompaniment will work well for organ or piano
