Description: This universal hymn text sets an atmosphere of simple beauty. My aim was to create the same through this original melody to Pierpoint’s text. Just like the ebb and flow in nature, my wish was to breathe through the phrasing and layering of voices. Although young treble voices are recommended for the beginning duet, the two parts may be sung by the soprano and alto sections. “For the Beauty is a beautiful piece. Easy to learn and inspiring to sing. A beautiful mix of classical and contemporary.Perfect for worship and non-worship settings.” – Carl J. Ferrara, Director, The Silver Chords of Smithtown, New York
