ABIDE WITH ME
This piece was written for my grandfather, John H. Ball, and it uses a traditional text by Henry F. Lyte. This piece is the result of a lively discussion about the new music that my grandfather was encountering at his church, and his desire to hear new music that would inspire him to worship. As I wrote, I looked to the solemnity of the words for musical inspiration. May this music bring depth and meaning to your worship.
