Clarinet Arrangement: 602-PraiseGodFromWhomAllBlessingsFlow
A while back a friend asked me if I was going to record the “Doxology”. She was enamored of my project, having grown up in a church household herself, and hadn’t found many recordings of “Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow” to her liking.
I said, I would, but it might be a while! It is number 602, the very last hymn, after all.
Anyway, it was her birthday recently, so I decided it would be a nice surprise for her to record the Doxology.
To get that “Church Hymn” feeling, I recorded each part 4 times so it would sound like 16 clarinets playing together on the hymn. I also added the postscript to the hymn from the Lutheran Service Book and Hymnal.
