Sunset Over Blue Water: Score & Parts (Eighth Note Publications) (Paperback)
Sunset Over Blue Water is a fresh new scoring of the famous hymn tune It Is Well with My Soul. The simple melody combined with the powerful, heart-wrenching lyrics, have made this hymn popular around the world. The lyrics are about remaining positive even when faced with great personal loss and sadness. This version is positive throughout and was inspired by a picture taken aboard a cruise ship of a beautiful sunset over the ocean. This work opens with meandering triplets in the flugel horn and euphonium before the hymn tune is played by building to a trumpet trio. It grows to a strong forte verse before fading away to a quiet and peaceful resolution. Arranged for brass choir by David Marlatt.
