The descant is beautiful!!!
Between the ages of 6 and 10 and again from 12 to 15 I lived in two different parts of Great Britain (N. Ireland and England). There I went to public schools (and Methodist churches) where my soul was fed through Anglican-rooted hymnody such as this. Imagine my delight to discover, now I am Orthodox, my absolute favorite, Be Thou My Vision, comes originally from the 6th (or 8th) century (ergo Orthodox) Irish monastic tradition.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful hymn.
