Shall We Gather at the River
Ron Mallory's interpretation of the favorite Robert Lowry hymn tune HANSON PLACE is truly fresh and innovative. It opens with the Singing Bell technique and optional handchimes setting a slow, freely flowing mood that brings to mind the river in the title. This feeling continues as the main melody progresses, before giving way to a bold and majestic section. Finally, the flowing of the river returns and leads to the end of this musical journey. This one is sure to become a favorite for years to come. Begins in F Major, then modulates to C Major. 77 measures.
