    The Nygard setting of "God So Loved the World" is not as well known as the Stainer setting, but it should be. The music is very moving, a perfect setting of this sacred sentiment. Note: This piece is actually harder to perform than it looks. The choir is singing in...

    4/4 against the 6/8 of the accompaniment, and it is *very* for the singers to get sucked into the triplet rhythm. Watch out for that. Finally, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has a recording of the Nygard setting with an orchestral accompaniment. It is exquisite, and I would love to have access to a string quartet reduction based on that. I would gladly use that instead of the piano accompaniment. Anyone?

    God so loved the World is a gentle composition of the briljant Chilcott, easy to perform with intention! And with a beautiful discount!

  • 2011-08-06 00:00:00.0 God So Loved The World

    God So Loved The World by John Stainer has been the only other arrangement that sent a tingle up the spine. Nothing has ever come close until I heard this arrangement or God So Loved The World by Carl J. Nygard Jr. performed on the CD Proms Praise at the...

    Royal Albert Hall in London. Truely a beautiful piece of music. Capturing the full meaning of this Bible passage in music.

  • 2008-06-12 00:00:00.0 Great alternative to Steiner

    This piece does go up to A and has some Gs essential to the melody. However if too high for an amateur choir could be transposed a third on most organs. It is a lovely piece for an average church choir with practice and excellent for an experienced choir.
