Jan Van der Roost was commissioned to write this hymn by the “International Association for Human Rights” in Frankfurt. The commission specified that the instrumentation of this simple hymn should be so, that it can be performed by a variety of combinations of players. The piece starts with an “intrada” for brass ensemble based on the first bars of the hymn, but is “ad libitum” and can therefore be omitted. The coda can also be left out, depending on the available instrumentation. The piece should be played “legato” to accentuate its hymn-like character.
