‘Blackwell has written another accessible piece for smaller choirs with a text perfect for the Baptism of Our Lord. Fewer pieces are available that reflect this feast’s Scripture, and Blackwell keeps this setting fairly simple. The piano part is independent and provides an interesting counterpoint to the vocal lines rather than just supporting them.’ Dr. Barbara Leyden, DMA, St. Joseph Catholic Church (Shawnee, KS)
