Please turn to number 34 and join with the clarinets in, “The Holy Son of God Most High”.
Name: VOM HIMMEL HOCH.
Tempo: Slowly, with dignity
Music: Geistliche Lieder, Leipzig, 1539
Harm. J.S. Bach, 1685-1750
Text: Henry More, 1614-87
I still don’t quite get these J.S. Bach arrangements. I have to fight with myself to even get them to this state. I really wish I had a choir director giving me some direction on dynamics and tempo.
Clarinet Arrangement: 034.TheHolySonOfGodMostHigh
There are these single notes at the end of lines, which I find I have a tendency to hit too hard instead of letting the phrase taper off.
Well, as I like to maintain, hymns are made for the common people, they are not supposed to be perfect. You just have to try.
