TTBB arrangements of "It Is Well" and "Amazing Grace"
Date: February 13, 2014
Hello, friends and colleagues! I am still working on getting together rep for a live concert recording of a cappella hymns and motets. Thaks to everyone that contributed to the conversation and esp. to Jameson Marvin who offered to contribute a new TTBB arrangement of "In the Garden" (since one did not heretofore exist exist). I have about got things decided on the motet end: "Exsulate just"; "Jesu, dulcis memoria" (Victoria); "Beati Mortui"; "O Vos Omnes" (Casals); and "Sicut Cervus" (Palestrina/Marvin). It is painful to whittle the hymn list down, but I am almost there. There are a couple of holes however which leads to my question:
Does anyone know of a compelling a cappella TTBB arrangement of the Philip Bliss hymn "It Is Well with My Soul?" I cannot find a published one, even in my old Rodeheaver, etc. TTBB hymnals. This seems like a real oversight, but perhaps that hymn is not a pillar of the hymnody all over the country as it is in the Baptist South. Any leads?
Also, I have not found an a cappella TTBB arrangement of "Amazing Grace" that I like. That has never been my favorite hymn, but it is so important to many people that I would like to include it if a good arrangement can be found.
Can anyone help me?
