Here, O My Lord, I See Thee

by Thomas Bell

SATB with soloist and piano or organ – KH 044 – duration 4:25

This composition is deeply reflective and soul searching.  The soloist leads the way and the choir follows with gorgeous antiphonal responses. With piano, organ – or even a harp – this piece will touch people who are seeking a closer relationship with God. (wouldn’t that include all of us?) The poetry from over a hundred years ago is still powerfully relevant today.
