Lo He Comes With Clouds Descending
This arrangement may be played in its entirety, or the introduction, interlude, and coda can be performed as an original composition. It is suitable for sacred or secular use, in church, concert, or festival. The powerful opening and closing fanfare frames the hymn tune, which receives a variety of treatments ranging from chordal to contrapuntal and antiphonal. Use of counter melody, mallets, and optional chimes serve to imitate the sound of a pipe organ. Set in f minor, this piece is 87 measures.
