Original

The repeated theme at the start of each section. three times in the minor key, the last in a major alternative. is intended to evoke a more plainsong mood. Each section then breaks into a variation on that theme, intended to more closely evoke the mood of the words than other well-known versions which are structured into verses. the music is sometimes very literal. for example, each part has seven quavers or crotchets in the sevenfold gifts phrase, and the words "Keep far" have only two parts singing at extremes. It should be sung at an unhurried pace, and in the 46. 4 bars the emphasis to shape phrases should be applied to the first and fifth beats of each bar.
