For this solo piano rendition of How Firm a Foundation, I've slowed the tempo and made the hymn a more peaceful, reflective musical worship experience that still retains its mood of joy and affirmation. Bookended by my version of Elgar's gorgeous Salut d'Amour, the hymn is arranged in a style that merges the Romantic era with Impressionism. Listen and you'll hear echoes of both Chopin and Debussy. Appropriate for preludes, offertories, general worship and recitals. 5 pages. Key: Eb major, then briefly modulates to D major, then returns to Eb. .
