All three songs from Prayers and Blessings are interconnected motivically, yet distinct in meter, tonality and message. Peace and reverence flow throughout. The version for bass-baritone was commissioned in 2003 by David Arnold, North Carolina. A transposition for lyric baritone was added in 2015, commissioned by Ferris Allen (baritone) and Linda Holzer (pianist) of Little Rock, Arkansas. Songs include: Ubi Caritas (Welcome Love); Make Me an Instrument of Thy Peace and Gaelic Blessing.
