God be in my head

composer
author of text
Book of Hours, 1514, in English in the Sarum Primer of 1558

 
God be in my head is a prayer for guidance whose words date back to a French text from around 1490. Like the other sacred texts included on this disc, it has attracted multiple settings. Parry’s is appealing and prayerful and includes much variety in its four lines without overwhelming.
