See All Things Shall Be Well is normally sung by a soloist, ideally a tenor, with the congregation singing the refrain, a quote from the mystic Julian of Norwich. The dynamics intensify after bar 48 and subside again after bar 63. The vocally silent bars in the verse can be filled with an instrumental solo, ideally by clarinet. Harmonically the piece is structured around a stepped progression, both ascending and descending. This lends the song a gently flowing quality.
