How Wide the Love of Christ!

Update 1/11/22: Sheet music for this tune is now available at

Now that my book is finished, I have a little more time for creative ventures. The first fruit of that time is a setting of Herman Stuempfle’s text “How Wide the Love of Christ!” I came across the text when searching for hymns based on Ephesians 3:14-21. I was drawn to this one because it takes “the breadth and length and height and depth”¬†and gives a verse to each word, followed by a doxology. I began with the intention of writing a big festive choral piece with brass, but it started morphing into a more intimate, jazzy setting–a very different feel, but I kind of like it.
