Crossing the Bar so beautifully captures the peaceful acceptance of life’s final journey into the hereafter that it’s easy to understand why it has become a best-seller. Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poignant poem of the same title is so well-known and beloved that this setting can serve as an effective moment of reflection in any concert, but is also ideal for funerals and memorial services. The poem is not “religious,” per se, nor is it faith-specific. However, Tennyson does express his hope “to see my Pilot face to face,” making it appropriate for services of many faiths.

Available for HIGH, MEDIUM and LOW voice. (Note: The “View Score and Listen” button opens only the vocal solo version for MEDIUM voice in E flat major).
