This setting of OLD 100TH (Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow) was inspired from the movie music of some of the 1950's westerns with busy string parts and aggressive brass fanfares.  This setting was also reworked into a stand-alone piece written for my friend Jung-A Lee for a concert she did in September 2012.

I was on a kick for a while to play through the Bach Well Tempered Clavier.  As I was playing through some of them, I found hymn tunes singing out.  In this, the C# major prelude, I found "Allein Gott in der Hoeh" hiding. The tune is flexible enough to be done in other keys, as its range is only a fifth.

This arrangement of SLANE (Be Thou my Vision) is atypical of most arrangements of this tune, however I really liked the texture.

KINGS WESTON (At the name of Jesus) is a powerful tune requiring a special treatment.  Regal yet ominous was my take on it.

JESU MEINE FREUDE, (Jesus Priceless Treasure) has been expertly set by so many composers, it seems redundant to create yet another.  However the tune and the event spoke to me.  We were doing the cantata "Jesu Meine Freude" as well as the amazing Bach Motet.  So this is set for extended introduction and congregational verses.
