Abide With Me
arr. Anna Laura Page
- Hal Leonard Corporation
A hymn of the prayerful heart, Abide with Me
is beautifully cast in this choral setting that is deeply expressive and at times sublimely eloquent. Vocals glide over a rolling piano accompaniment as the melody is adorned with flute and solo handbell obbligati. Judicious key changes bring the anthem to a crescendo at just the right moment: "Heaven's morning breaks and earth's vain shadows flee." A fine choice for memorials or dedicatory services as well as other thoughtful moments in worship.
