Program Notes

Arranger Jay Dawson brings a new element to Abide With Me. Interspersed with the lovely melody are the subtle and compelling bugle calls of Last Post, the British equivalent of Taps. This hauntingly beautiful addition brings a unique and emotional mood to the overall effect.

- Program Note from publisher


Abide with Me is a Christian hymn by Scottish Anglican Henry Francis Lyte most often sung to English composer William Henry Monk's tune entitled Eventide.

The hymn is a prayer for God to remain present with the speaker throughout life, through trials, and through death. The opening line alludes to Luke 24:29, "Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent", and the penultimate verse draws on text from 1 Corinthians 15:55, "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?":
