When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

Numerous composers have taken a stab at these brilliant words by Isaac Watts. My favourite setting is by Philip Wilby, a local composer who has recently taken a liking to brass bands. Since I already had a favourite anthem with these words, I was rather disappointed to find myself singing this hymn to a completely different tune in the shower one day. Having said that, I was quite taken by my new melody, and had to write it out.

Sheet music is available here.
