This is another in a long series of Solo/Duet/Trio hymns which can be performed as a solo, duet or trio with equal success. If you get to the gig and one of the trumpet players in your trio missed the bus, you’re covered as a duet. If the church is limited on finances, you can do a solo.
These flexible arrangements have been so popular that I’m running out of popular hymns.
I usually introduce the well-known hymn with a close, yet different melody to get the listeners attention. Then throughout the piece, fragments of that melody return and at the end it finished the piece.
