I Heard The Voice of Jesus Say – Unaccompanied Anthem

I Heard The Voice of Jesus Say – Unaccompanied Anthem

This is a reharmonisation of the well-known hymn tune, Kingsfold. It is beautifully harmonised by RVW, which makes an appearance in this for the last verse. Each part has the melody at some point and would make a great 4-voice piece.The performance directions on the last page are pivotal to the desired effect: the changes between ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ ought to be a more of a slight slide than a slick change of vowel sound.

A preview of the score is available below alongside a midi-produced recording. If you would like the proper score, do drop me a line.
