Comments for this piece:
From Sasha: What a beautiful arrangement! I look forward to having our small choir (one great reason for SAB pieces) share it with the ward! Thank you for sharing your gift of music.
5.0 stars.

From Ivan: This is my favorite choral piece to conduct. I get chills every time on page 2 when the full choir sings together for the first time. I love the climax at the end and encourage my tenors to really bring out that e. That part is not optional, in my opinion. The music is just beautiful!
5.0 stars.

From Ruth Owen: Absolutely beautiful and not too difficult. A unique sound that is still very reverent for sacrament meeting. I got a lot of compliments for this one.
5.0 stars.

From Amy Seiter: I love this arrangement! I have always liked the song, but after practicing this, I can't get it out of my head. Thanks for sharing! Our choir looks forward to singing it next week for ward conference.
5.0 stars.
