2016 Holiday Contest Entry

I wish you the greatest pleasureplaying these arrangements of traditional Thanksgiving songs. Thanksgiving isone of the most beautiful of holidays, a holiday filled with joy and music.

We GatherTogether to Ask the Lord's Blessing: Written in 1597 by Dutch composerAdrianus Valerius to celebrate Holland's victory over Spain, the tune wasbrought by the early American settlers. Poet Theodore Baker wrote a new versionof the lyrics in 1894, which became the standard Thanksgiving version.

Over the Riverand Through the Wood: Lydia Maria Child, an outspokenabolitionist and advocate for Indian rights, wrote this poem in 1845. It wasset to music by an unknown composer.

Let All ThingsNow Living: This traditional Welsh melody (Llwyn Onn or The AshGrove in Welsh) has inspired numerous lyricists to write words to the hauntinglybeautiful tune. The poem by Katherine Davis, written in 1939, is the text mostassociated with Thanksgiving.

Amazing Grace:Written by reprobate sailor John Newton in 1779. Known for his profanity,vulgarity and venery, he was imprisoned, beaten, and enslaved, before hereformed, and became a leading minister and hymn-writer. This is one of themost popular hymns ever written.

This Land isYour Land: A traditional American tune, made famous by folksinger WoodyGuthrie in 1940. Guthrie wrote the words as a rebuff to the song God BlessAmerica, the huge hit by songwriter Irving Berlin. As a counter to Berlin'sforthrightly drum-beating patriotism, Guthrie would occasionally addpolitically charged verses expressing his support for communism.

I hope you enjoy playing this as much as I enjoyed writing it. If you enjoy this, you are welcome to try some of my other arrangements. You can see them at
