Lead, kindly Light

SATB; Unaccompanied

With a text by John Henry Newman, Lead, kindly Light 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’.
