The Gift of Love

By Hal H. Hopson

SATB choir (Key of A)
Arranged by Hal H. Hopson. Hope's All-Time Best Selling Choral Series. Wedding, Love, Hymntune, Children, General, Sacred. Octavo.

Item Number: HP.HH3922

Wedding, Love, Hymntune, Children, General, Sacred.

This Hal Hopson classic is appropriate for services where "love" is the theme and is especially useful for weddings. The familiar words are a paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 13 and the haunting tune is based on the traditional English melody, O WALY WALY. The SAB voicing, String Quartet setting and Performance/Accompaniment CD are new for this year (2012). The String Quartet setting can be for strings only or used as an accompaniment for the choral settings or the vocal solo, but not for the TTBB version which is in the Key of C. String Parts come in the two keys, A & G, and include parts for Violin 1 & 2, Viola and Cello.

    This is a particularly skillful adaption of the folk tune Waly Waly to a paraphrase of the beloved chapter on Love in I Corinthians 13. It is easy for an SATB choir to learn, has an easy but interesting accompaniment, and is well received by a church congregation. I am...

    rehearsing it with a second choir, who seem to like it as well as the first did a few years ago.

    I sang this song with my mom and sister at a wedding and it was beautiful. We used some tenor parts, but mostly sang it SSA.
