King of Love
This reflection on the hymn tune ST. COLUMBA and the historic text based on the 23rd Psalm features climbing bass notes with flowing LV arpeggios. As we envision the verse “in death’s dark vale, I fear no ill,” the key changes to minor, emphasized by optional handchimes. An echo effect is introduced and provides an engaging serene assurance throughout. As the piece concludes we rejoice in the Good Shepherd who tenderly cares for his flock, calming our fears and saving us by grace. 88 measures. Keys of C Major and c minor.
