Video: Holy Holy Holy, arr. by Philip Sparke - Dave Werden, Euphonium

Rating: 9 votes, 1.89 average.
Here is a video of a special arrangement of John Dykes' famous hymn "Holy Holy Holy" that we did for church on Sept. 14. This is from Philip Sparke's wonderful book of hymns set in special arrangements. This one is at the end of the book and is the hardest, but it is still not beyond most decent players. Range only goes up to a concert G and no multiple tonguing is required (although it can be used to "spark" thinks up a bit). There are two publications:

Solo part and accompaniment CD (including both treble and bass clef solo parts):

Piano accompaniment (no CD):

You can perform from the first book above if you have an audio system. But of course I chose to buy both books so I could perform with an accompanist. The lighting was a bit varied this day - it was cloudy with the Sun often peeking through. I did my best to even it out, but my video editing tools are limited.

    So THAT'S what it is supposed to sound like! Very nice, thanks for sharing!

    I did this piece about a year ago at my church. I really like the arrangement. I think it is kind of unique in that the recognizable melody is not in the solo part at all, i.e. without the accompaniment I think most people wouldn't know that it is "Holy, Holy, Holy".
