Our Many Voices and Each Heart by James Biery

This hymn setting was commissioned for Thursday’s Convention Eucharist and features a new text by Fr. Harry Hagan, OSB. James Biery’s creative arrangement of the well-loved tune KINGSFOLD for assembly, choir, organ, brass and timpani will suit this “big” liturgy well, but it is also suitable for “smaller” situations.
