There's a Wideness in God's Mercy

This is a setting for SAB choir and piano of the classic Frederick Faber text. The words celebrate the vast and nearly incomprehensible nature of God's mercy with a lyrical melody suitable for moments of reflection and introspection.

Composer Commentary

This Faber text has long been a favorite of mine, but its frequent pairing with the hymntunes such as BEECHER and IN BABILONE always seemed a bit too festive. My setting seeks to cast a different mood, one more suitable for the penitential seasons.
