A Gaelic Blessing by John Rutter is an SATB choral piece written as a parting gift for a much-loved choir director. It was commissioned by the choir of 1st United Methodist, Omaha, USA (1978). Due to the gentle nature of both words and melody A Gaelic Blessing has become a popular choice at christenings, weddings and funerals. Sometimes known as 'Deep Peace', this piece became a hit in 2003 when a recording of it by Aled Jones was released
