In this variation of “Sweet Hour Of Prayer” the melody stays intact. The intervals are arranged to help the harmony produce a mellow, soothing effect. The few other intervals included are not wider than an octave. The song has 32 measures and is in the key of B flat. Although it does have the 2 flats, it has no extra accidentals.
Piano students practicing their harmonic intervals of 4ths and 5ths may enjoy playing this arrangement.
Those who are learning to play using 4 notes at the same time (2 notes per hand) may find this arrangement workable since there are times when all the notes are moving in the same direction.
It may also be sung a capella in 4 part harmony, or as a solo with piano accompaniment.
