My Father's World
Syncopated patterns of eighth notes propel this hymn arrangement from start to finish. A pattern is established early and the melody itself is embedded in its motion. The result is a delightful new take on this old favorite. The piece is a study in rhythm using 4/4 and 6/8 meters and duplet and triplet groupings of eighth notes throughout. 77 measures in length, it remains in the key of C throughout with minimal accidentals.
