This is a beautiful hymn setting arranged for brass band by Steve Robson, inspired by the words of Charles Oakley (1832-1865), set to the melody of Little Cornard by Martin Shaw (1875-1958).
Steve writes: The words of the opening line of the Hymn have added significance for me, in that I am fortunate to live high amongst England’s most northerly hills, “The North Pennines”.
A strikingly beautiful melody which has been artfully scored by Steve to create waves of emotion throughout. A stunning piece to include in programmes for concerts and entertainment contests.
