‘Blackwell writes both parts with a fairly high tessitura, and both require melodic and rhythmic independence as they sing pleasing melodies. A contrasting B section in the parallel minor key leads to a recapitulation of the original melody with a soaring intensity on the words “I believe in God even when He is silent”.’ Dr Barbara Leyden, DMA, St Joseph Catholic Church (Shawnee, KS)
