In the manuscript of Julian of Norwich's meditation, "All Will Be Well," one is struck by the mantra-like quality of the passage. This setting tries to embrace that repetitive style in a musical manner. At the Univesity of Notre Dame, this reflective piece has been used at times of transfer and departure (memorial services, last visit of the senior class to Sacred Heart church and the Grotto), weekly preparation for Sunday Eucharist, especially during Advent and Lent. But the most powerful use comes in conjunction with momoents of profound healing: services of reconciliation and anointing of the sick. In these contexts, the verses take on a life of their own and speak to the heart of all gathered.By : Steven C. Warner

Performance Notes: This piece should create a mood of reassurance. Instruments play the introduction followed by the choir humming the refrain in four parts. The choir continues to hum the refrain while the cantor sings the verse. Thereafter the refrain is sung SATB. During each verse, the choir hums the refrain.

Steven Warner received his B.A. in Religious Studies from St. Michael's College in Winooski Park, Vermont, where he then served as a Director of Liturgy for two years. He moved to the University of Notre Dame, earning a Master's in Theology/Liturgy in 1980.
Mr. Warner joined the Campus Ministry staff at Notre Dame in 1979. Since that time he has continued to build up programs and enhance the integrity of sacred music and worship at the University. With his assistance the liturgical tradition on campus continues to grow, influenced by the presence of the Folk Choir and the liturgy preparation materials published through his office. A new hymnal supplement, residence hall music workshops, planning and celebration of campus-wide liturgical events, and coordination of musical resources for more than three dozen residence communities all take shape under his guidance. For the past decade, Mr. Warner has taught liturgical music to the graduate students involved in the Alliance for Catholic Education, a volunteer teaching corps headquartered at Notre Dame.
The Folk Choir was founded by Mr. Warner in 1980. Then a group of a dozen vocalists with no musical library, the group has now grown to more than fifty singers, instrumentalists, an assistant director, and several assistants pursuing their Master?s degrees in Sacred Music. The choir began a regular schedule of national and international tours in 1988, and recently completed its eighth trip to Ireland and Scotland in May of 2008. Their travels have taken them to New England, the Southeast, British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, Arizona and California, as well as tours throughout the Midwest..
The repertoire of the choir is published exclusively through World Library Publications of Chicago, IL. "Songs of the Notre Dame Folk Choir" first appeared as an octavo series in 1995, and now comprises more than a hundred titles, including a collection of responsorial psalms for the church year. The choir?s most recent recording is ?Songs of Saints and Scholars,? a celebration of twenty years of touring the Emerald Isle, and a new live album "From Gethsemani to Galway" was recently recorded at the 2011 NPM convention in Louisville, KY, as part of the Folk Choir's 30th Anniversary celebration. Collaborators to the Notre Dame Folk Choir series have included the late Rev. Chrysogonus Waddell, ocso, former choirmaster of the Abbey of Gethsemani, and the assistant director of the Folk Choir, Ms. Karen Schneider-Kirner. Some of the compositions have become parochial standards in just a few years: "Set Your Heart on the Higher Gifts," "All Will Be Well," "Song of Judith," "The Lord's Prayer," and "Rosa Mystica" are several examples.
Warner composed two new Mass settings with WLP in 2011: ?Mass of Charity and Love?and a collaborative composition with Karen Schneider Kirner,?Mass for Our Lady.?
