The Crusaders Hymn is a folk melody from Silesia, a historical region of Central Europe located mostly in modern-day Poland. The tune was published in the Schlesische Volkslieder (Silesian Folk Songs), 1842; and the text, “Schönster Herr Jesus,” by German Jesuits, was published in the Münster Gesangbuch (Münster Hymnal) in 1677. The Crusaders Hymn is so named due to the legend that it was sung by German Crusaders on their way to the Holy Land. It is perhaps more well-known as “Fairest Lord Jesus” or “Beautiful Savior” from its two popular English translations.

In this arrangement for trombone (or euphonium) and organ, the tune is presented by the soloist in verse 1 and by organ with countermelody by soloist in verse 2. Following a brief modulation, the tune is presented ½ step higher by soloist and organ.

This arrangement is ideal as a prelude to worship or at offertory or communion. Includes both bass clef and Bb treble clef solo parts.
