A majestic choral showcase, Only Thou Art Holy
opens with men's and then women's voices singing Mary McDonald's inspired new musical setting of the traditional hymn text, Holy, Holy, Holy
. Flowing triplet figures highlight Mary's powerful accompaniment. The traditional hymn tune appears next and rises masterfully through sequencing keys and thickening textures, building to a glorious final verse with congregational singing. Mike Lawrence's orchestration provides a stellar accompaniment option for this magnificent anthem.
Instrumentation: 2 Fl, Ob, 2 Cl, Bsn, 2 Hn, 3 Tpt, 2 Tbn, Tuba, Harp, Pno, Vln 1 & 2, Vla, Cello, Bass, Perc, Timp.
