2-part Choir with Piano
Arranged for the Greeley, Colorado Stake Conference in January 2017, this approachable 2-part version of the beloved hymn is perfect for youth or adult choirs with limited rehearsal time.
The piano quotes the classic A. C. Smyth tune Dare to Do Right. This arrangement can work well for small or large groups. While the piece is notated for women on part 1 and men on part 2, it would work equally well with a 2-part men’s choir or a 2-part women’s choir. Part 2 has the melody throughout the piece, so adapting for different groups should be easy.
On October 15, 2016, an estimated 3,500 – 4,000 youth gathered at CSU’s Hughes Stadium to participate in the cultural celebration for the Fort Collins Temple. You can watch the entire celebration here:

What Wondrous Love is This is a shimmering, modern arrangement of the gorgeous modal hymn tune. The reflective piano accompaniment features sweeping interludes between well-supported choral verses. Each verse is distinct, but they share many common elements to shorten rehearsal time. This piece was commissioned for a wonderful church choir.
