From the publisher’s website:

‘The much-loved benediction “May the road rise up to meet you…” is given a setting of beauty and simplicity that is a welcome addition to the versions that have come before. The accompaniment is effective, but not complex, and the piece may be sung as a solo if desired. There is an optional lower part at the end.’


‘This short choral benediction is written with such an endearing melody that children as well as adults will sing it with their hearts. Unison throughout, with just a touch of harmony on the “Amen,” it is a simple-to-prepare worship moment that makes a very nice concert closer as well.’

JWPepper Inc. Editor’s Review, 2011

‘Lovely piece! This was just perfect for my Year 6s to learn for their Leavers’ Service. They learned it in a trice and it sounds gorgeous – simple but with enough interest, including the second part in the ‘Amen’. Highly recommended.’
