Here is a beautiful instrumental duet arrangement (for VIOLIN solo with PIANO accompaniment) of the beloved hymn tune BETHANY by Lowell Mason. This gently flowing arrangement encourages contemplation and meditation making it an ideal selection for worship services, weddings, or funerals.

The VIOLIN leads with the melody for most of the song with only 4 measures near the end where the PIANO plays melody. The song begins in the key of C major with the VIOLIN on the D and G strings. For the second verse, the PIANO transitions to the key of D major and the VIOLIN plays an octave higher using the A and E strings more. All notes for the VIOLIN are playable in the first position making this arrangement an excellent choice for early-intermediate string players. The PIANO accompaniment is written for an intermediate player.

The purchase price includes a 4-page combined score with both VIOLIN and PIANO parts on each page plus a separate 1-staff score for the VIOLIN solo (1 page).

This arrangement is one of the 10 songs in the collection “Praise Him with Stringed Instruments (A Collection of 10 Hymns for Violin Solo with Piano Accompaniment).”
