A beautiful prayer for communion. Mostly unison and two-part writing, with one four-part verse and optional a cappella sections it concludes with a lovely twofold Amen. Appropriate for use at communion services throughout the church year.
The first verse is for two-part mixed choir, and the second slower verse uses four parts with optional passages for unaccompanied choir. Tempo I returns for the third verse, which dissolves into a brief, contrapuntal Amen ending that also may be sung unaccompanied. The easy keyboard music helps create a flowing character. Especially useful for a small church choir. (The Diapason, April 2013)
