This is a beautifully worshipful rendition of this powerful hymn. This arrangement was written with the opportunity to feature the woodwind section. If you just have the 2 ‘core’ woodwinds (a flute and an oboe or clarinet) you can still play this piece and it will be beautiful. BUT…if you have 2 flutes, oboe, 2 clarinets and a bassoon or bass clarinet, there are some really nice moments in this piece to feature them.
This arrangement is in the Key of D.
This would serve as a powerfully worshipful offertory or as a special moment in any style service.
As with all the arrangements in this series, you don’t have to have a rhythm section to play this piece. Not at all. As long as you have a piano player, they can play the written out piano part.
