"Some alto parts go beyond mere boredom into active inanity. But some alto parts you couldn't make interesting if you sung them while performing the Dance of the Seven Veils in an Olympic-sized swimming pool filled with two tons of lemon Jell-O." (Baraita, courtesy of Mechaieh.) When scoring my own hymns, I came to appreciate just how difficult it is to improve the lives of altos: I wrote this tune partly to give them something more interesting to do — with or without the Jell-O.
