Christianity was a huge part of Odetta's life so I felt it was only right that we should include some reference to it in our tribute. Bristol-based singer-songwriter Katey Brooks impressed us a couple of years back, first with her stunning True Speaker EP and then with a jaw-droppingly soulful performance at one of our live showcases, so we jumped at the chance when she offered to do a version of this mid-19th century hymn for the compilation. Recorded in France, this short a cappella song provides a very grounding, graceful bridge to the album's heartfelt conclusion.
