At the end of June our choir director calls and asks if I could write an arrangement to Come, Come Ye Saints to be performed the third Sunday in July in honor of Pioneer Day. From the day of the call, that left me with 8 days until I had to have it done (because I was leaving on vacation for a week and couldn’t keep working on it when I left). I worked hard for those 8 days and this is what came from it.
The parts are from the LDS Hymnal until the last two measures. The first verse is a solo. Here is the music for just the parts:
Thank you for all that you do to bring peace a joy through the music if the hymns. It is very beautiful.
I’m just grateful I can share music with anyone who needs the spirit of these songs.
