String Quartet - Intermediate

Item Number: S0.98837

Maintaining the simplicity of the hymn, I decided to give it a 'soulful' touch by adding some small chromatic movements and extensions to give it extra color. Also, I made it a goal top add octave doublings with the piano whenever the main chorus was 'sung' by the stringed instruments to really enhance the message of the song. Work is scored for piano and a string quartet and would be excellent as music played either as an opening to a worship service to prepare the congregation; or, as music used during a church service when corporate fasting or prayer is exercised. Also would great as reflective music in private times of worship. To listen to the work as well before considering purchasing, go to I can be contacted via email at if you have any other questions.
