Wonderful Words of Life (A Celebration of the Scriptures for Piano Solo). By Mark Hayes. For piano. Sunday Suites Series. Sacred. Advanced. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.70-1785L).
Mark Hayes explores the wonders of scripture in this thematic "Sunday Suite" for piano. First comes a rousing prelude in the style of Aaron Copland and based on the American folk hymn "How Firm a Foundation." For an offertory or prayer meditation, Mark offers a flowing, atmospheric setting of the Gospel favorite "Wonderful Words of Life." And to conclude the service, you'll find a stunning, pianistic setting of "Word of God, Across the Ages." This suite is ideal for services focusing on the scriptures, but these challenging pieces are also suitable for special numbers or recitals.
