  • April 17, 2012 Moving setting

    The Nygard setting of "God So Loved the World" is not as well known as the Stainer setting, but it should be. The music is very moving, a perfect setting of this sacred sentiment. Note: This piece is actually harder to perform than it looks. The choir is singing in...

    4/4 against the 6/8 of the accompaniment, and it is *very* for the singers to get sucked into the triplet rhythm. Watch out for that. Finally, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has a recording of the Nygard setting with an orchestral accompaniment. It is exquisite, and I would love to have access to a string quartet reduction based on that. I would gladly use that instead of the piano accompaniment. Anyone?

    God so loved the World is a gentle composition of the briljant Chilcott, easy to perform with intention! And with a beautiful discount!

  • August 06, 2011 God So Loved The World

    God So Loved The World by John Stainer has been the only other arrangement that sent a tingle up the spine. Nothing has ever come close until I heard this arrangement or God So Loved The World by Carl J. Nygard Jr. performed on the CD Proms Praise at the...

    Royal Albert Hall in London. Truely a beautiful piece of music. Capturing the full meaning of this Bible passage in music.

  • June 12, 2008 Great alternative to Steiner

    This piece does go up to A and has some Gs essential to the melody. However if too high for an amateur choir could be transposed a third on most organs. It is a lovely piece for an average church choir with practice and excellent for an experienced choir.
