In this setting of familiar words written by Brian Wren, Normand Gouin crafts an elegant melody, then harmonizes it with sophistication, but also accessibility. An arresting modulation a tritone away from the home key adds substantial interest, and is followed by a smooth return to the home key. If your assembly knows this hymn, this arrangement will help them hear it anew!
