027 - Most Holy God, the Lord of Heaven

Tune: Dunedin

I first heard this tune years ago in the USA, where the Episcopal hymnal used it for the text "Christ is Alive".  I fell in love with the music -- it is majestic and beautiful, harmonically rich, with rhythm that follow the text beautifully, and moves the phrase constantly forward.  Too bad that in Common Praise, it's only used for this somewhat obscure evening hymn (all the sadder in a day when evening worship is on the wane).
