In this must-have octavo, Lisa Stafford has adapted the elegant hymn tune ST. COLUMBA in two settings with pastorally useful texts for funerals. The graceful melodic material is incorporated into the refrain of Psalm 23, with verses set in chant style. The response for the "Song of Farewell" comes from the Rite of Funerals. Both works feature easy two-part choral writing.  Participation is easily achieved through the intuitive responses.  A definite for your funeral repertory.
