Sweet Hour of Prayer


Product Description

This well-known hymn provides a message of relief and solace. The melody lies within a comfortable vocal range of an octave and is purely diatonic. This arrangement pays homage to the delicate polyphony of Percy Grainger's Ye Banks and Braes o' Bonnie Doon. The conductor will observe a similarity in the scoring of this setting to the weaving of harmonic lines seen in Grainger's piece. Though each line is important, the piece is primarily a solo vehicle for horn. The horn is allowed the opportunity to display beauty of tone and expression in measures 5 - 20. In measures 25 - 40 the hornist may play more boldly, returning to a more somber nature for the closing solo measures. This arrangement was commissioned by Melodianne Mallow, conductor of the North Richland Middle School Band, from North Richland Hills, Texas. This band was named CC Honor Band for the state of Texas in 1998.
