Fantasia on the Crusader's Hymn
By Bill Thomas
Eighth Note Publications
Conductor Score & Parts
This composition is based on material drawn from the hymn "Fairest Lord Jesus," which is also referred to as "The Crusader's Hymn." Funky and unpredictable rhythms in all parts make this work something a little different for players and audiences, but the strong writing and driving ending will make for a memorable performance.
