Reviews

Any composer who now sets The Lord bless you and keep you is brave, but David Barton is successful by writing an engaging tune presented with the utmost simplicity. Intended for the reception of a couple into membership of the Methodist Church, it should have a wider use wherever a sung blessing is appropriate.

James L Montgomery in Church Music Quarterly (March 2012)
