We Walk By Faith, and Not By Sight
SATB a cappella
Published by Fresh Ayre Music

This is a combination of two hymns from the 1990 Presbyterian Hymnal: “God, Whose Giving Knows No Ending” (Beach Spring), and “We Walk By Faith and Not By Sight” (Dunlap’s Creek). I have a particular love of 19th-century American hymnody, and this piece intentionally emphasizes familiar traits of early American musical language: pentatonic melodies, unpolished harmonic vocabulary, rhythmic vigor, and wide open spaces.
