This composition was composed as a gift for my friend and colleague, Dr. Ronald Johnson, of The University of Northern Iowa. Its origin lies in a concert I heard in the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig during which the school organist performed a set of variations by Mendelssohn on this hymn tune.

Product Description

This com­po­si­tion was com­posed as a gift for my friend and col­league, Dr. Ronald John­son, of The Uni­ver­si­ty of North­ern Iowa. Its ori­gin lies in a con­cert I heard in the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig dur­ing which the school organ­ist per­formed a set of vari­a­tions by Mendelssohn on this hymn tune. It is one of Bach’s more melod­ic hymn tunes and it was also used as the basis of a very great com­po­si­tion in the band’s reper­toire, the Angel’s Camp by Charles Cush­ing. It is a tune that seems to stay in my mind.
