The two pentatonic gospel hymns, Come, Ye Sinners Poor and Needy and Amazing Grace have long been favorites of mine for textual reasonsas well as for their musical simplicity and beauty. As early as the mid to late70’s my wife, Brenda, and I sang the two together as a quodlibet in ana-cappella duet.  This idea became thea-cappella center section of this arrangement. While serving Columbia BaptistChurch in Falls Church, Virginia (1976-1987), my love of Dave Brubeck’s Take Five led me to play with the ideaof setting Come Ye Sinners (a hymn Ihad used with revival choirs on several occasions in local churches) in 5/4meter. After writing out the very repetitious accompaniment by hand, thisarrangement took shape. It was first used at Columbia. Since then, it has been receivedvery favorably from others who have performed it. It has proved useful on choirtours with both youth and adults, including tours of central China as well asthe North Eastern United States. A performance by the Concert Choir at NorthGreenville University, in South Carolina, (Barry Combs, director) can be heard onthe Pepper web site.
