Brethren We Have Met to Worship
An opening, chant-like mood – designed to evoke the ancient origins of the Church – sets the stage for this arrangement of the hymn tune HOLY MANNA. The piece utilizes changing moods, harmonizations, and styles to follow the Church (and all those who have ever met to worship) through the ages before a final verse in a sprightly 6/8 ushers us into the modern day and looks forward to all those who will worship in the future. It is a fitting choice for any worship or concert setting. 95 measures. Key of F Major.
