In the recent days of the COVID-19 Global Pandemic, some have found the need to be still in order to maintain emotional health. Sometimes we need quiet, listening to the world around us, and believing in our hearts that things will be better soon. This setting of Greg Funderburk’s words call us to find a place of peace and solitude within us….a place of rest. It contains mild dissonance, imitation, and a cello obligato that creates a mood of personal reflection. This piece might be effective as an introduction or closing to prayer, bringing our hearts and minds into a place of calm acceptance. “You are our refuge, our Sabbath God.”
