An exceptional new composition based upon the hymn "Converse” (commonly known as “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”), William Harbinson has crafted a concert overture using the hymn’s theme as a starting point. Beginning with brilliant brass fanfares and woodwind flourishes, the middle section is made up of an inversion of the hymn tune, and ends with a dramatic climax. This work is simply beautiful and heartfelt; showcasing your group’s musical expression like no other.
