Take a step back in time and experience the joy and nostalgia of a great hymn of the faith! Sweeping across the heartstrings, this lilting arrangement is truly captivating! The accompaniment echoes the old-style revival piano playing that is our heritage of sacred song. A tour de force for the choir, the writing offers each section a chance to shine, and the ending “Amen” moment will give a satisfying conclusion to this winner!

This anthem begins as a fresh treatment of the hymn "Wonderful Words of Life" with a lively accompaniment, then incorporates a verse of the hymn "I Will Sing the Wondrous Story" (tune HYFRYDOL). In the recap a countermelody (in an operatic melismatic style) is added to the first hymn tune and the accompaniment shifts into overdrive. This reviewer thinks perhaps less would have been more in the final section, but this piece might work for a certain type of choral purpose with the right group. The piano part will require a skilled accompanist, but the full orchestration may not be worth the time and work it would require.

The Bottom Line

Pros
Nice use of 2 traditional hymns in an anthem.
Cons
The piece almost moves from a "lively" anthem into "too busy."
