Description:

Connaughton’s hymn has an unusual meter of 4444 54 7 with a refrain of 10 10 10 10. Krisman’s setting perfectly mirrors this plan, creating a contrast between the brief phrases of the verse and lyrical expanse of the refrain. Lest the pattern become tiresome through seven stanzas, the last two explode a half-step higher with a truly remarkable piano accompaniment.
