New Music week 5: ST. ANNE

52 in 52The fifth newly composed hymn tune setting in my 52 in 52 series is ST. ANNE, “Our God, Our Help in Ages Past.” This is written in ternary form (ABA), with contrasting fast/rhythmic and slower/legato sections. It is also more harmonically adventurous (chromatic) than my pieces in this series to date, as the tune is presented in two keys simultaneously.

One month into this venture, the response has been very encouraging. Thank you to all who download these little pieces, and thanks, too, for your thoughtful emails and comments. Remember, if there is a particular tune that you’d like me to arrange, just let me know, and be sure to vote (the poll is in the sidebar) for your favorite hymn out of the ones that have been suggested so far!
