Three hymn arrangements that reflect the greatness of God.
Blessed Assurance (ASSURANCE) starts out in a gentle 12/8. A modulation leads to the second stanza in 9/8. The refrain is repeated in dramatic flair to the full-organ ending.
O Sacred Head, Now Wounded (HERZLICH TUT MICH VERLANGEN) begins in Bach-like chorale form, but then progresses into a romantic treatment of "The Old Rugged Cross".
How Great Thou Art (O STORE GUD) is a dramatic arrangement which will display the full resources of your instrument. The first stanza and refrain are expressive and meditative, and the music gradually builds to full organ at the end.
