A three-verse setting of a lovely Welsh tune in triple meter, a very popular hymn setting in the UK where it is usually sung with Wesley's text, Love divine, all loves excelling.
The 'singers' are the Korg men and boys choir (SfZ) as this is the ideal voicing of my specialized following audience. This time the instrumentation is all GCPO, played out of Finale. In this arrangement, I tried to vary the textures quite a bit, and I saved the big drama for the bridge into the final verse, moving from a celeste-like tremulant in mostly 16'+8' voices (there is a 4' flute to make sure it didn't get too muddy)...then add big voices underneath and diapasons and bright voices above. Volume changes are done by using terraced dynamics - turning voices on and off only; no swell or crescendo pedals. My score is two braces - a Great and a Swell, each with their own instance of the Aria Player, each instance with a hand-picked GCPO ensemble of selected stops - all voice changes are done by using score expressions to change midi channels, thus simulating piston-activated changes. Harmonizations on vv 2 and 3 are original.
