From the publisher’s website:

‘Sweet lyricism pervades this setting of a traditional Gaelic blessing. Versatile setting can be done by solo or mixed voices as well as accompanied by piano or organ.’


‘David Barton’s approach to ‘Deep peace of the running wave to you’ is similar in concept with a melody derived from a straightforward motif that grows sequentially, with the whole repeated but more intensely the second time, and a brief coda. But instead of Knight’s answering part, Barton’s optional second part supports the melody at its climax on ‘moon and stars pour out their healing light on you’. It is a useful piece for those for whom the Rutter setting presents too many challenges.’

James L. Montgomery in RSCM Church Music Quarterly (March 2016)
