35006404, One-piano, Four hand duet
Two of Christianity’s strongest hymn tunes, composed by Rowland Hugh Prichard (1811-1887) and George Job Elvey (1816-1893) respectively, are blended in this arrangement in the form of a fantasia which, according to Hayes, allowed him to create a work that would showcase the dramatic nature of the texts and spin off developmental sections in orchestral fashion. The lyricism of HYFRYDOL, in triplet time, contrasts effectively with the more majestic and dynamic melody of DIADEMATA in 4/4 time. This is a joy to play and will challenge the pianist. Perfect for concerts or worship settings. LEVEL: Advanced
