2-part chorus (flexible) with piano and violin duet
Philip Paul Bliss’s gorgeous hymn Brightly Beams our Father’s Mercy describes the Christian obligation to reflect the Savior’s light and help others find Him. This new arrangement is simple enough to be sung by youth choirs, but it is beautiful and interesting enough for experienced choirs to use in Sunday meetings or special conferences. This arrangement was written for an upcoming conference of the Greeley, Colorado Stake.
Now available in an SAB edition, this 2010 cantata includes four brand-new choral pieces, two choral arrangements of familiar Christmas hymns, and narrated piano solos that shine new light on some old tunes.
This contemplative, short piece for men’s voices invites all to come to Christ. Through a simple comparison, the song relates the shepherds who left their flocks, the Apostles who left their nets, and the modern man who leaves his sins to follow Christ. It was conceived previously and arranged as a part of the 2010 Christmas cantata Come and Behold Him. This version is an excerpt from the original cantata score, with the same pagination and measure numbers.
