Be Thou My Vision
This gentle Irish melody begins quietly with a calm, harmonic accompaniment played with optional handchimes. The quietness moves into a second energetic statement of the tune with an exciting malleted accompaniment, followed by a return to the quiet, harmonic material that flows to the end. The optional flute adds a lovely imitative dimension to this setting, which is appropriate for general worship services and festivals. Scored in C Major and Eb Major, this piece is 87 measures.
