Beautiful Zion, Built Above [SATB]

SATB with piano and optional flute

This hymn, loved for generations, was arranged for piano, flute, and women’s voices by Nathan Howe at the request of the woman who would eventually become his wife. It was sung at a fireside in preparation for a pioneer trek activity at Martin’s Cove, Wyoming.

The SATB version is based on the SSA version, which can be found here.

Please note that the MIDI and mp3 files skip the repeat at measure 42, omitting the second verse.
