The gently flowing ostinato refrain can be sung under each verse, perhaps using a neutral syllable or humming. It is perfect for use throughout the Lenten season as well as for reconciliation services. The repetitive, meditative quality of this piece makes it work well as a processional. A part for C instrument is available separately.
