Traditional English Folk Song / arr. David Marlatt
Eighth Note Publications
This beautiful folk song has been used as the melody for several popular hymns including: "I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say," "O Sing a Song of Bethlehem," "I Feel the Winds of God Today," and several others. This arrangement is opened by a solo violin with a sense of a lone player on the top of a hill surrounded by mist. The tune is then played in full quartet voicing leading to other variations and rescorings, ending as it began---very peacefully and reflectively.
