Here’s the pdf of my clarinet arrangement:033.ServiceBookAndHymnal

You’ll probably notice, aside from them both having the word “morn” in the title, the music to this hymn is exactly the same as number 32, “Rejoice, Rejoice This Happy Morn“. So when I was approaching it, I wanted to think of something else interesting to do with the music, so I didn’t play the exact same thing all over again. This time, I decided to slow it waaaaay down, and play quietly.

I skipped the bass clarinet and played the “bass part” on soprano clarinet, up an octave.
