"Comes at times, a stillness as of Eden"

Do these words ring a bell any where ?

Heard and sung about 1947-1955.

Regards, Colin

I think you will find that the words are "Comes at times, a stillness as of even". These are the words of the opening line of "Evening and Morning", a sacred song with words by Rev J Gregory Smith, and music by Sir Herbert Oakeley. If you want further information, I have a copy of the music in a book of sacred songs for church and home.

Thanks,
is it in Ab ie., 4 flats ?

There is a version by Rev.H.H.Woodward but I found its the music
by Sir H Oakley that I want.
There is a new Arrangement about but for TTBB voices.

After seeing your post I found the Oakley one in an old Congregational
Hymnary. But I am not too happy with the key.

Yes - Four flats. Have never come across four part version, although mine does say "Arranged as a song by Ernest E Dicks". Transposition no real problem these days if you use software such as Melody Assistant!
