This arrangement of the well loved English Folk song O Waly, Waly will work equally well as an accompaniment for Choirs or Congregations singing When I survey the Wondrous Cross or it may also be used as an effective instrumental item during the Easter period.

For secular use the folk song would also work well for smaller groups playing at weddings or other functions.

The arrangement allows for a great deal of flexibility in presentation and will sound complete with as few as four players yet the scoring allows for expansion up to a full symphonic orchestra, concert band or brass band

As with all music available from Opus 3 Music this arrangement has been well tried and tested in performance

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast
Save in the death of Christ my God
All the vain things that charm me most
I sacrifice them to His blood

See from His head, His hands, His feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

Were the whole realm of Nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all!
