We don’t have to look far to find great music by great composers. Minnesota’s own Stephen Paulus’ setting of this Michael Dennis Browne text is reverent and prayerful with colorful chords that help create a very meditative aura. Care should be taken to avoid the feeling of meter while you work to sing the phrases Paulus has so craftfully designed to bring out the absolute beauty of this piece. Many have done this piece but don’t let that deter you from allowing your singers and audience to experience the sheer radiance of this wonderful piece. I give this five out of five stars.
