Quick Overview

GENERAL (OR LENTEN) ANTHEM FOR SATB VOICES, OPTIONAL ALTO SOLO, OPTIONAL CONGREGATION, AND PIANO; EARLY AMERICAN HYMN, ARRANGED BY BRIAN CHILDERS. OPENING WITH A GENTL PIANO SOLO, BRIAN CHILDERS' ARRANGEMENT OF THE HYMN "THERE IS A FOUNTAIN FILLED WITH BLOOD" BRINGS NEW LIFE TO THE EARLY AMERICAN HYMN. THE TRANSITION FROM THE TRADITIONAL 4/4 METER TO A GENTLE 3/4 METER GIFTS THE SINGER WITH LOVELY LEGATO MELODY AND TEXT COMBINATIONS. CHILDERS INTRODUCES THE TRADITIONAL MELODY ON THE FIRST STANZA WITH THE WOMEN SINGING THE FIRST PHRASE, FOLLOWED BY THE MEN AND THEN THE FULL CHOIR AT THE CLOSE OF THE STANZA. HE INTRODUCES A NEW MELODIC LINE WITH STANZA 2 WITH AN ALTO SOLO THAT WILL EASILY BE ACHIEVED BY ANY OF YOUR ALTOS. AS THE CHOIR AS THE CHOIR CONTINUES IN FOUR-PART HARMONY, THE CONGREGATION CAN BE INVITED TO JOIN IN SINGING STANZA 3 AS THE ANTHEM RETURNS TO THE TRADITIONAL MELODY. PIANISTS WILL WANT TO SPEND TIME ENSURING THE FLOWING EIGHTH-NOTE PHRASES PAINT A MUSICAL PICTURE OF A FLOWING FOUNTAIN.
