Arr by Christine Anderson . . . Hymn Tune Classic Solo . . .
This is a straightforward solo in AB form -- the A part is the familiar hymn tune alone, and the B part is a "flowing, but not hurried" 8th note countermelody over the melody in the piano. There is an alternative ending with handchimes, and the A part can be done with handchimes -- but these chimes are optional and not absolutely necessary. The opening A part is played once through, and is very basic and easy; the B part has more challenges, but nothing too difficult for a soloist "just beyond the basics" -- the one-time Shelley measure and the one time cross-over measure are easy ones, and completely explained.
The solo is not long -- 41 measures -- but a strategic repeat sign added could lengthen it if necessary.
Optional chimes are from C5 up to C6 (9 bells).
The piano part is included and not difficult -- it could be played by a decent high school level pianist.
• Keys of C and F Major, 4/4 time signature, marked "slowly, reverently" 72-80 speed
• Quarter and 8th notes throughout; there is only a single measure with accidentals
• Dynamics are soft (A) and mf (B)
