Over the horizon

This Christmas song has a powerful background theme of Jesus’ Passion.

Over-the-horizon-Born-to-die

Peter Cousins, one of the Chapel Committee at Hiatt Baker Hall in the University of Bristol, wrote these words and the music in 1971 for the Hall Carol Service, and at the service accompanied himself on the guitar.

I helped him with both words and music, and later arranged a piano accompaniment. We didn’t keep in touch, so I can here only acknowledge my gratitude to him for this moving song.
