I’ve always loved this blessing, which Moses was told by God to pass on to Aaron and his sons - especially the simple but very effective setting that I found in Congregational Praise. I’ve used it a lot in contemporary worship, with guitar and keyboards, and wanted to write something that had a similar feel.

Initially this was written as a simple unison tune against that same accompaniment, but recently (2001) I re-worked it as this unaccompanied four-part setting, which I like rather more. However, I think it is still effective in it’s original form, which is why I’ve left the guitar chords in.
