Here is a flowing instrumental trio arrangement (for FLUTE and/or VIOLIN duet with PIANO accompaniment) of a beautiful hymn from the late 1800's titled "The City of Our God" when associated with the lyrics by George Washington Bethune. The tune was composed by William Augustine Ogden. This hymn may be better known by its Spanish title "Jerusalén Mi Amado Hogar" (Jerusalem, My Beloved Home) when used with contemporary lyrics by Nicolás Samojluk. The original lyrics by G. W. Bethune are shown below.
Both the FLUTE and the VIOLIN get to lead with the melody at times making this a fun and equally challenging piece for both instruments while adding variety for the listeners. The FLUTE plays the melody for the first verse and then the VIOLIN leads with the melody for the second verse. The song begins in the key of G major for the first verse, then transitions to the key of C major during the piano interlude between verses.
Though notated with FLUTE on part 1 and VIOLIN on part 2, the ranges are also accessible for other combinations of C instruments such as 2 VIOLINS or 2 FLUTES. The range for each part is as follows: Part 1 (FLUTE) ~ A4 to A5; Part 2 (VIOLIN) ~ D4 to F5. For the violin on either part, all notes are playable in the first position making this piece an excellent choice for early intermediate string players. Duration 2:50.

1. a grand staff (9 pages) with all parts on each page
2. separate scores for the FLUTE and VIOLIN (2 pages each) and PIANO (4 pages)
3. a combined FLUTE and VIOLIN score (4 pages)

Lyrics by G. W. Bethune
O city of the jasper wall,
And of the pearly gate,
For thee amid the storms of life,
Our weary spirits wait,
O may we walk the streets of gold,
No mortal feet have trod;
O may we worship at the shrine,
The temple of our God.
O land of bliss!
O land of light!
O city of the jasper wall!
O land forever bright!
