        I've directed John Rutter's anthem with a larger SATB choir. It was beautiful. Now that I am Director of Music of a small church choir, I have to go back to folk singing, unison singing that is enjoyed by all.

        Very playable accompaniment and a lovely rendition if you only have a few upper voices to work with. We did this with two sopranos and two altos and it was quite moving. If I'd had more time I might have written an alto line in a few spots but the point near the end where the voices split is quite nice.

        This is a superb piece of music normally found as a four-part SATB arrangement. The unison version is increasingly useful as a solo piece and it is a shame that is only available in a medium voice key as a higher key version would make it more useful for the majority of wedding soloists.

        Great stuff! Fairly easy to play and easily adapted to make it even easier without losing too much of the accompaniament feel. Beautiful tune. Can be sung as a solo or with a whole choir in unison or in two parts. Buy it! Your choir/soloist will love it, as will your audience.
