The late William Ferris was a composer for whom writing music was a labor of love. He believed that music written for the Church should have the same integrity of form and substance as a concert work. This exquisite anthem for unison choir was composed in 1995 and made its recording debut on the disc and music collection Be with Me, Lord, sung by the William Ferris Chorale and directed by Ferris himself. Many performance options are offered, making this unison setting suitable for mixed-voice choirs as well. The transcendent, modal organ accompaniment and instrumental obbligato provide the delicate framework. Organ interludes introduce the verses, adding an air of serenity in this work of art, which is sure to touch your spirit and inspire you to prayer.
