This is the second of two hymn-tunes that I composed to mark the departure of two much loved and greatly respected chaplains from Cardiff University. This tune is dedicated to the Reverend Stewart Lisk.

Like its sister composition, this hymn-tune was inspired by fine twentieth-century words (in this case, based on a prayer of St Augustine of Hippo) that are saddled with an old and, in my opinion, not especially appropriate tune in the New English Hymnal. I hope that musicians will find that my tune suits the words well, capturing their mood and ’flavour’.

Although the music was composed to be sung to the hymn ’Light of the minds that know him’ by Timothy Dudley-Smith, musicians are welcome to sing it to other texts in the metre 76 76 D.

Unlike most of my music, this hymn-tune may be downloaded free of charge. If you sing it in your church, please be so kind as to let me know by email.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
