The text for this piece is based on Psalm 121 but heavily adapted with verses amalgamated to make a more secular but still powerfully spiritual song. Although it sounds rich and full with all 4 parts, it sings very well with just 2 or 3 parts too. The main tune is in the alto although – as with much of my writing – I’ve tried to give all parts a good tune. Try it with just alto and tenor. Or alto and soprano. It was written for my friend and colleague Kate Howard.
