Revival is a long overdue resource that provides fresh accessible arrangements of classic hymns for contemporary ensembles. Each arrangement is scored for SAB choir, piano, guitar, and optional instrumental parts. For added texture, the final stanza of each hymn includes an alternate harmonization of the accompaniment with a soprano descant. These fourteen arrangements will open a whole new set of treasured hymns to piano and guitar based ensembles. Compatible with the versions founds in GIA’s most recent hymnals, each of these arrangements is intended to support and inspire the sung prayer of the assembly. Every one will find a comfortable home in your repertoire throughout the liturgical year! A special spiral bound edition of Revival is also available. This edition is perfect for accompanists who would also like to use these hymn arrangements as preludes, interludes, or postludes. Tony Alonso, pianist, writes: “The words and melodies that have reflected, shaped, and sustained a rich tradition of hymn singing across a range of Christian denominations are some of the richest treasures of the church. For generations, they have been a source of strength, comfort, and challenge through all the seasons of life. Many of them transcend their native denominational identities and some even find a home outside the church. As we live into the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, I hope these contemporary interpretations of some of the most beloved hymns might unlock some of the finest texts and melodies of our traditions to assemblies and ensembles who might otherwise be reluctant to approach them so that we may continue to nurture a common set of music across Christian denominations that transcends instrumentation or styles.”
