A brand-new setting by Karl Jenkins of the 14th-century Eucharistic hymn, written specially for Bryn Terfel's Simple Gifts album. This is an exquisite sacred solo for voice and piano (or organ) complete with gently rocking rhythms and Karl Jenkins' uniquely atmospheric sound world. An optional second voice part is included which gives the opportunity to perform a hauntingly beautiful duet.
"This is truly an exquisite piece. When I first heard this work on Bryn's album Simple Gifts it took me by complete surprise. What a magnificent work. It certainly doesn't hurt hearing Bryn and Simon Keenlyside singing this gorgeous work. Part of the immense attraction of this piece is hearing it done with such precise and musical execution. What amazing instruments the both of them possess. Thank you!"
