REST is perhaps my most favourite melody from my childhood. And the accompanying phrase "speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire, O still, small voice of calm!" stuck with me enough that finally, some 50 years later, when the internet came along I was able to find the hymn again.
I’ve tried to give a sense of depth and calm in the orchestration. There is movement, but it’s quite subtle, pushed back behind the layers of instruments playing the melody in unison. There is an introduction, 4 verses, and a coda, which gives us a duration of about 3 minutes.
