Craig Phillips's attractive setting of this evening collect from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer is placid and serene. The choral lines are well-shaped and pleasing to sing, and are given just the right amount of support by the carefully-crafted organ accompaniment.

Anthem text
Keep watch, dear Lord.
Keep watch with those who work,
or watch, or weep this night,
and give your angels charge over those who sleep.
Tend the sick, Lord Christ;
give rest to the weary, bless the dying,
soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted,
shield the joyous, and all for your love's sake.
Keep watch, dear Lord, keep watch. Amen.

--Book of Common Prayer (1979)
