Simple, elegant and timeless, "Abide With Me" was written by Henry Francis Lyte in 1847. The hymn was set to music by William H. Monk and debuted at Mr. Lyte's memorial service. Robert W. Smith's setting is written for the very beginning band using only the first six notes introduced in most band methods. Each instrumental family has the opportunity to perform melodically while the setting allows students to experience lyrical phrasing in the early stages of their development. An exceptional arrangement for any band program.
