SAB with keyboard (middle verse a cappella). Text by Alexander Means.
Notes: Singers need to relax into this melody to achieve the simplicity and folk song character of this piece, but they must sing on the beat and not drag. Remember you are singing about Wondrous love, not any old kind of love. The middle section is harder than it looks and when sung unaccompanied is quite exposed. Practice each line separately, then put two together and then add the third. Altos might have problems pitching bars 37-38. Similarly sopranos will find pitching the top G at bar 60 tricky and will have to rehearse the next phrase several times to build up confidence. The piece ends positively and forte.
