Barbara Kelly / James MacMillan
Repertoire Note

Choral level of difficulty: Level 1 (5 greatest)

A beautifully lyrical piece written as a wedding gift. The text is an apt homily on love, and MacMillan sets it in a style which will be familiar to all his devotees. A simple but effective organ part provides not only support but the means of intensifying the message as it progresses to its climax right at the end. A straightforward and effective anthem.
