Arr by Victor Labenske . . . Praise Hymn . . .
This is an excellent version of the Tim Hughes praise hymn, done in the simple manner of the original in 4/4 and without any syncopations needed. The song is repeated several times in the middle bells, with bass chords underneath and treble notes above in high harmony -- it rises to a full crescendo with some echoes in the middle, then stays strong and full until the second crescendo at the end, where the finish is done with echoes again and a full chordal shake.
The performance problem here is speed -- the original moves along briskly (more a 1+ speed), and this arrangement is marked 120-138 to keep pace. The normal Level One choir, therefore, will need to practice the music slowly and move it up to tempo as a mission, becuase doing this hymn slowly will simply not work.
We highly recommend this for what is is -- a good, meaningful praise hymn that is presented without syncopations and difficult rhythmic reading
• Key of G Major, 4/4 time signature, marked "worshipfully" 120-138 speed
• Quarter and half and whole notes throughout; there are no accidentals
• Echoes and a final shake are the special techniques used
• Starts piano, increases to a full forte, and continues mf to a forte ending, with a shake
