LEVEL — Moderate
PERFORMANCE TIME (approx.) — 2:00
SUGGESTIONS FOR USE — Prelude, Offertory, Recital
ARRANGER NOTES — Although this medley is appropriate for the Thanksgiving season, it certainly may be used throughout the year. In many churches the Doxology is often sung each Sunday following the offertory, so the tune will already be familiar to your congregation. Hearing it in 6/8 meter rather than the traditional common time (4/4) should give this arrangement a fresh sound. When the song is repeated beginning at ms.13, be sure to take your time and play it rubato (freely) and with expression. The original tempo then returns at the whole step modulation (ms. 23). Be sure to play it lightly and legato with the same feel as the first page.
