Description

SATB (some alto divisi) with organ. NEW EDITION. Just an exquisite setting of the Robert Bridges poem. If you don't know this one, give it a lo,Ok and listen. Ron Martin has reworked this gem and made it MUCH more singable (his words, not ours). Sure to become a choir favorite for years to come.

Lyrics

Love on my heart from heaven fell,
Soft as the dew on flow’rs of spring,
Sweet as the hidden drops that swell
Their honey-throated chalicing.

Now never from him do I part,
Hosanna evermore I cry:
I taste his savour in my heart,
And bid all praise him as do I.

Without him nought-so-ever is,
Nor was afore, nor e'er shall be:
Nor any other joy than his
Wish I for mine to comfort me.
