Review
"I am also deeply moved by Peter Pindar Stearns's Your Love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens. Stearns is widely respected for his mastery of textures and atmospheric writing, and while he certainly honors those native gifts, this piece has an organic urgency which impels beyong the internal climax to the true goal: 'For with you is the well of life, and in your light we see light."highly recommended." -AAM Journal, April 1998

Description A striking and effective setting of this psalm, reminiscent of Leo Sowerby in his harmonizations.

Text
Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heav'ns,
and your faithfulness to the clouds.

Your righteousness is like the strong mountains;
your justice like the great deep.

You save both man and beast, O Lord.

How priceless is your love, O God,
your people take refuge under the shadow of your wings.

For with you is the well of life, and in your light we see light.

Text: Psalm 36.
