Composer:  Sir Hubert Parry
Arranger:  Jorge E. Garcia

Price:  $25.00

Performance Notes: 

After the presentation of the main hymn, the second section is a fantasia utilizing the chord progression of the original hymn. After the main theme is presented again, an unusual surprise is stated in the coda. This piece is written in the key of C# major with the recapitulation of the main theme in F# Major. Special note is the counter melodies in the 2nd Violin parts as well as the Violin 3 Viola parts throughout the piece. The opening fanfare presents a challenge with the use of double flats, but with a few sectionals will be easily mastered. Regarding the “question and answer” section at mm.61, care should be taken to blend the voices.
