What a Friend We Have in Jesus
The hymn tunes CONVERSE and FRIEND are combined in this commissioned arrangement. The introduction conjures up visions of Pachelbel's -Canon. After the verse begins one can still hear motifs of the canon feel interspersed in the accompaniment. Extensive use of LV technique and arpeggiated chords accompany the section on "I've Found a Friend, O Such a Friend." The meter changes periodically, but stays in simple time.
