The Lord of Sea and Sky ....


It's been another of those disquieting weeks. A U.S. president disparaged people of color; the people of paradise (Hawaii) found themselves --- mistakenly --- on the receiving end of a nuclear attack warning.

So here's something uplifting for Sunday morning --- one of the most popular contemporary hymns performed back in 2012 by the National Youth Choir of Scotland at Dunblane Cathedral (Church of Scotland).

The piece dates from 1981 and was composed by Wisconsin-born Dan Schutte, cited most often for his contributions to Catholic liturgical music and hymnody.

Purists, theological and otherwise, can be fairly grumpy about his work --- including this one. I like it
