Mourning Hymn

By R.G. Huff, Arr. by Heather Sorenson

Many texts have been set to the well-known folk tune O WALY WALY, but it seems at home in this moving testimony of Calvary's love. A tasteful piano part moves in and out of the choral textures with sensitive understanding. The vocal ranges explore lower tessituras and thus grant a deep richness to the anthem's timbre. This octavo immerses the listener in the story and looks without flinching at the cross and its ministry of grace.
