Houston, Texas, USA
- This is a wonderful, fresh new setting of a beloved text. Accessible to the average church choir, Whitbourn effectively captures the beauty and gravity of this text. Designed to be able to be learned quickly, the choral parts repeat and are not terribly difficult (except on or two tricky spots) yet are beautiful and effective. The organ accompaniment can be easily adapted to organs both large and small. There is even a lovely organ solo interlude that could showcase a nice solo stop.
- While the website says the piece is scored for SATB it is actually SSATB. There is one line of divisi, but it is not complex and is easily learned.
