New Arrangement for The Church of Jesus Christ
A new arrangement for "The Church of Jesus Christ".... Yeah, this is a hard one. I have been thinking about how this song would work in the program for next year given that it has been chosen as one of the songs. I like this song, with it's 'bouncy' melody and movement, but I'm just not sure it's what I want for the program next year. I have been sitting down to the piano and hitting the keys a bit to figure something else out for this. I am thinking of a slower introduction and verse to the song. Then changing the key and speeding it up just a little bit to make it feel a bit more "triumphal". What are your thoughts? Please leave your comment with what you think of this song for the program, and how you might see it fitting in well with the other songs we will be doing. This will be the first song that I arrange for next year, so I'd really like to get your insights on this one!
Thanks in advance!!
