Reviews

'The time spent listening to it has been delightful. Tone, enunciation, resourcefulness of arrangement and accompaniment, all are exemplary' (Gramophone)
The words of this song begin with proclamation in the verses; this is answered in the refrain by the singer’s commitment to service. This is reflected in the tune. The melody for the verses has a vigorous movement to proclaim the work of God in creation, his continuing love for that creation, and his call for service. This is answered in the repeated refrain where in a quieter, humbler melody the believer responds in self-dedication. The refrain walks a knife-edge between humility and sentimentality, and singers need to be aware of this spiritual danger. Both words and music are by the American Jesuit musician Daniel L Schutte, who has served both on college campuses and in parish ministry.

from notes by Alan Luff 1999
