Program Notes

This beautiful setting of the lovely Irish folksong Be Thou My Vision truly enhances the natural appeal of the touching melody. After opening with a lyric presentation of the hymn, the pace then quickens as a series of creative variations follow, rhythmic and pulsating, before the melody is restated by full ensemble for a rich and sonorous close to this fabulous setting.
