35010311, SATB, $2.50
This octavo is a haunting and sensitive SATB arrangement of the familiar early American tune that features a flowing piano part, gorgeous chord substitutions, and a slower tempo which highlights the depth of the text. Contrast is the watchword between the 4 verses with the first being the simple, beautiful melody in unison for the whole choir. A key change sets off each verse, and the tempo quickens in verses 3 and 4, building excitement. The 3rd verse is highlighted by a meter change from 4/4 to 3/4 and features a poignant a cappella section. After a grand setting of the 4th verse, still in 3/4, the refrain returns in the first tempo and meter and gives the choir the opportunity to sing in lush 4-part harmony to the gentle Picardy ending. Unique and fresh, accessible partwriting…you won’t want to miss it!
