Festive Hymn Settings, Set 6 Based on Folk Hymns with Brass Michael Burkhardt 20-822-20.00 Two folk tunes set for voices (choir and congregation), organ, and brass quartet. "Make Me a Channel of Your Peace," a paraphrase of the popular prayer by St. Francis of Assisi, is sung to a folk-like melody by Sebastian Temple (PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS) and supported by a constant gentle syncopated rhythmic figure in the organ accompaniment for the verses and a scaler countermelody for the Refrain. A warm and legato brass adds breadth and forward direction to the refrains in addition to providing a canonic/imitative treatment for verse two. The setting for Jane Marshall's text, "You Call Us, Lord, to Be," sung to the Welsh folk melody, RHOSYMEDRE, includes a brass/organ arrangement of Vaughan Williams' organ setting as its Introduction and Coda.
