David Shaffer has created a spectacular setting of this classic hymn for younger musicians. As a graceful introduction leads into the flowing opening statement of the melody, the arrangement grows with dramatic energy throughout. Although simple, the classic David Shaffer harmonies and counter-melodic writing make this arrangement a joy to teach and to perform. How better to teach the concepts of legato style and phase development. Especially appropriate for holiday concerts, this arrangement is also a perfect choice for both concert and festival performances.
