We are facing a new year now. We still need easy, beautiful pieces. By easy, I mean, start with unison. Add a harmony line as a change of pace, and divide to four voices, possibly, just at cadences. Texts must be expressed in the first person, i.e. like “I Need Thee Every Hour,” “Abide with Me,” and “Because I Have Been Given Much.” These hymn texts are not classic by accident.
