Führ, sanftes Licht (Lead, kindly light)

SATB; Unaccompanied

John Henry Newman’s ‘Lead, kindly light’ is presented here in a German translation and is a short, moving piece perfectly suited for our current times. Step-like movement in the melody reflects the speaker seeking light in the darkness, slow but steady in their way out of the ‘encircling gloom’.
