Hymns for Hers (Three Hymn Tunes Arranged for SSA). Composed by Lani Smith. For SSA choir. Sacred Anthem. Octavo. Published by Laurel Press (LO.10-2188LA).
Three well-known hymns (Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing; Just As I Am; and The Church's One Foundation) frame a trilogy for women's voices to express Christian comfort, salvation, and mission. The unusual vocal harmonies float above a flowing piano accompaniment that varies from rippling descants to a river of deep bass sonorities. The three sections are equally effective when used separately or as a group.
