This setting of the familiar text to the PLAINFIELD tune will be very easy and comforting to your church congregation. The piano opens with a 2-bar intro and voices enter, and a repeat is then offered for stanza 2. A refreshing and uplifting key change is scored for the third stanza into the key of D, and then into E-flat for the final (fourth) stanza, and the upper-range instruments play a lovely obbligato line above the melody. Beautiful harmonies and lower keys make this a go-to setting for this familiar hymn.
