Dearest Children God is Near You SSAA a cappella
(2006) One night while rocking my infant son to sleep, I was struck with how lullaby-ish this hymn is, so I sang it to him, put him to bed, and worked out the harmonies for this arrangement for female choir. It's inspired in part by the "Lift Thine Eyes" trio from Mendelssohn's Elijah oratorio, one of my favorite major works. And Dayson will fall asleep to it until he doesn't want to anymore! :)
