Gathered from across the Collegium catalogue, 'Be thou my vision' includes all of the church anthems and other sacred pieces for which Rutter is justly famous. Alongside Gloria and several of Rutter's most popular shorter pieces including 'For the Beauty of the Earth' and 'All things Bright and Beautiful' are pieces especially recorded by the Cambridge Singers for this release—'Cantate Domino', 'Arise, Polyphony , Bournemouth Sinfonietta , Stephen Layton conductor.
It is also known by the repeating first line of the text, "Deep peace". Rutter, an Anglican , set many biblical texts for Christian services. The format of the text is based in a similar format to that found in some Celtic Christian prayers and songs, such as those found in the Christian-era Scottish Gaelic collection, the Carmina Gadelica. Rutter has said that his English-only composition is based on "an old Gaelic rune", and that he added a line mentioning Jesus and the word Amen, to make it also a Christian anthem. Both Sharp's and Rutter's compositions begin every line with "deep peace", and refer in a repetitive manner to the elements of nature, such as, "running wave", "flowing air", "quiet earth", "shining stars", "gentle night", "healing light", and in Rutter's version to "Christ, light of the world".
