The last in my series of five communion anthems using Celtic folk melodies. The Breton melody lends itself to a haunting and at times thrilling treatment of simple words to accompany the act of communion. This setting particularly, with its more contrapuntal keyboard accompaniment,would benefit from additional instruments. See also:In the quiet of this moment; Wafer and darkest wine; With this bread and with this wine;Jesu, we come with re’rence and love.
