    I ll Walk With God - Nicholas Brodszky and Sammy Cahn - Christian Jenkins

    The 1954 film, The Student Prince, is based loosely on Sigmund Romberg's operetta, with I'll Walk With God by Webster & Brodszky replacing one of the dated Romberg numbers. The part of the Prince was played by Edmund Purdom who lip-synched the songs to recordings by Mario Lanza. The story is generally quite light and witty in character. However, I'll Walk With God is sung by the Prince as he accompanies his father's coffin to its final resting place.This arrangement was commissioned by David Childs, and is included on his solo CD, Hear My Prayer. It is available on the Doyen label, DOY CD166.

    Hot Gospel - Various

    Tim Paton has creatively arranged for brass band this selection of familiar hymns/religious songs to create a 5-movement, gospel-styled work. With features for soloists across the band and a great mix of styles including swing, traditional jazz, blues, and calypso, this makes for a versatile concert feature either as a complete piece piece (9 minutes); using the alternative optional cuts (4.5 minutes); or simply by cherry-picking the individual movements in order to spotlight the different styles/melodies/soloists of your choice.With solo features in each section, the piece includes:The Church’s One Foundation – Swing version with Tenor Horn soloNearer My God To Thee – Traditional jazz style with Cornet soloThe Old Rugged Cross – Bluesy with Flugel soloHow Great Thou Art – Calypso with Euphonium soloJust A Closer Walk With Thee – Finale with jazzy Trombone soloTim comments:The community gospel choir sound has become very popular in recent years. “Hot Gospel” is my attempt to capture this charismatic experience in a medley of well known sacred music. Each of the five songs chosen follows a similar pattern – a verse for full band followed by a solo, and all solos are intended to sound like improvisation.I’ve included Optional Cuts which would reduce the play length from c. 9 minutes, down to approximately 4.5 mintues, should your concert programming not allow for the full version. The optional cuts simply side-step the solo section of each song.However you wish to perform Hot Gospel, it will definitely bring variety to programme choice.Also available for wind/concert band.

    Judd: Caelum Corona - Stephen Bulla

    Stephen Bulla's ‘Caelum Corona' (‘Crown of Heaven') portrays, in sound, a Christian's walk in faith, intended metaphorically via a musical narrative reminiscent of the early church pilgrims, their struggles and triumphs. The composer initially evokes the atmosphere of Rome at the time of St. Paul and other martyrs, thus the Latin title. Bulla marks his imaginative tone poem with dark, brooding music in the first two of three parts, in each of which he has embedded an appropriate hymn or song reference as thematic material. The first of these sounds in a minor key following a symphonic exposition made up primarily of fanfare-like motives, the music at times quite harsh and abrasive. The song is Paul's statement of exuberant faith (2 Timothy 1:12) in the midst of prison and persecution: ‘For I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I've committed unto him against that day.' More challenging, aggressive music returns until a further point of reflection on Christ's sacrifice is reached. The music graphically evokes the barren landscape of Golgatha, the horror of the crucifixion, including stark wind sounds, a loss of stability via eerie, dissonant chord clusters, and even the nails being driven into Christ's body. The Baritones and then Flugel Horn softly play ‘He died of a broken heart.' Yet the Christian life, despite its perils - both at the time of Paul and now - is a victorious life, and the composer resolves the tensions of the work in a scintillating finale, a brilliant setting of the old song about spiritual warfare and the ultimate triumph of Christ the King: ‘Victory for me!' (T.B. 841). The chorus of that tune proclaims: ‘No retreating, hell defeating, shoulder to shoulder we stand; God look down, with glory crown our conq'ring band.' That crowning is the same one sought and claimed by St. Paul (2 Timothy 4:8): ‘Now there is in store for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award me on that day, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.' Believers look forward to participating in the final coronation of their Saviour - King of Kings and Lord of Lords - while humbly desiring their own ‘crown of heaven.'
