Item Number: S0.626035

Daniel Steenson's piano arrangement of the hauntingly beautiful hymn tune, BRYN CALFARIA ("Calvary Hill") is suitable for any season, particularly Advent, Lent, Resurrection and Pentecost.  Hymn texts associated with this Welsh melody include, "Lord, Enthroned in Heav'nly Splendor", "Look, Ye Saints, the Sight is Glorious" and "Come, Ye Sinners, Poor and Wretched".  Visit  to familiarize yourself with the rich history of this timeless hymn.  This setting lies comfortably under the hands, though it requires the pianist to make smooth shifts between registers of the keyboard.  Listen carefully so the melodic layer "sings" above the ostinato figure.  Let the music "breathe" before both interludes (mm. 18 and 50).  Respond to the contrast between the moving ostinati stanzas versus the freer, improvisatory middle stanza and codetta.
