Hymn Song and Dance
This original work is actually a suite of three pieces – Hymn, Song, and Dance – all built around a shared melody but with completely different styles. ‘Hymn’ is in 4/4 time and quite steady in meter, consisting mainly of quarter notes with passing eighths. ‘Song’ is written in 12/8 with a flowing pattern of three eighth notes throughout.
‘Dance’ is quite lively and rhythmic, written in 2/4, with a jig-type feel and a variety of stopped techniques. Due to the tempo, rhythm and techniques, ‘Dance’ is Level 4. ‘Hymn’ and ‘Song’ are Level 3.
