RBM-007 | Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah / God of Grace and God of Glory

Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah / God of Grace, God of Glory
SATB Chorus with Orchestral or Piano Accompaniment

This arrangement represents the 5th movement of the larger work Canticles of Praise [], and has here been separated as a stand-alone anthem. The hymn tune CWM RHONDDA is utilized throughout – with the two texts appearing in the title order as the work unfolds. This setting begins and ends with a sparse, Billings-like treatment of the tune with a somewhat bare orchestration, while a more traditional 4-part rendering of the well-known hymn with richer underscoring comes forth in the center section. An optional narration exists for use with the larger work, Canticles of Praise.

( dur: 5:00″ )

Full orchestral accompaniment materials (2222 / 2221, timp, 2 perc, hp, stgs) are available on a rental-only basis from ECS Publishing.
Orchestral performance does not require the use of organ.
