Composed by Thomas John Williams. Arranged by Renee Hyche McKee. Celtic,Contemporary,Easter,Graduation,Sacred. Score. 4 pages. Renee H. McKee #6168319. Published by Renee H. McKee (A0.835643).

Legend has it that this old tune was discovered written on a scrap of paper found in a bottle which washed up on a beach in North Wales around 1900; its Welsh nickname Ton-y-Botel (Tune in a Bottle) comes from this story. The melody is also known as "Ebenezer," named for Ebenezer Chapel where the actual composer attended services while writing this tune. Lyrics in sacred and secular contexts alike have been set to this famous melody.

This dramatic piece begins with the arranger's original music rising in a theme accompanied by triplets, then moves into the powerful Welsh tune itself which in this creative arrangement is tossed from voice to voice, hand to hand. A strong sense of the love of Jesus "rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness over me" as well as a tender confidence in it "underneath me, all around me, is the current of thy love" are the lingering emotions one feels as the same original music closes the piece with an impression of wonder.

Some fingerings are included to facilitate reading but are merely suggestions. Pedaling has been written in, but again, is a suggestion. 

Because of its history, this music is adaptable to almost any circumstance, secular or sacred, where people gather for meaningful events: civic or military ceremonies, graduations, memorials, weddings, or church services of any denomination.
