Built on the Rock
With a slight introductory nod to EIN FESTE BURG, the first stanza proceeds in the expected 3/4 meter. Stanza two moves smoothly into 6/8 and introduces the mallets and handchimes. The final stanza reverts to the original meter, with mallets driving the bass rhythms to the hymn’s triumphant conclusion. 99 measures in the key of C minor.
