Choir, SAB - Early Intermediate
Composed by German. Arranged by Curtis Hanson. Christian, Sacred. 5 pages. Published by Curtis Hanson (S0.102661).

Item Number: S0.102661

This German early Renaissance anthem for SAB choir and piano is loosely based on a setting by Johannes Brahms. This arrangement features a tenor/bass composite in the male voices. The baritone range is mainly D-D so it is accessible for most tenor and/or bass voices. The original English translation by Catherine Winkworth has been adapted to contemporary language by the arranger. The first verse closely resembles the homophonic setting by Brahms. The second and third verses have alternative choral writing and harmonization. The new accompaniment varies with each verse giving it a freshness from the older versions. The straight-forward choral writing and supportive accompaniment lend themselves to performance by most church choirs. It would be a welcome addition to the library needing a piece for Confirmation Sunday.
