Steve Warner has paired a text by John Bowring with the tune Aberystwyth by Joseph Parry in this superb arrangement. We begin with the shimmering sounds of handbells as the dulcet tones of the flute softly outline the melody and lead us to the first verse, sung by unison men's voice with guitar, strings, and organ. Succeeding verses offer well-conceived compositional devices including modulation, varied vocal textures with countermelodies, and instrumental interludes. "Watchman, Tell Us of the Night" exudes a sense of tranquility and peace. Also a marvelous addition looking ahead to Advent.
