Be Thou My Vision is a traditional Irish hymn dating back to the 6th century. Its beautiful melody has been transcribed and arranged for many different settings over the years. This particular arrangement can be used to reinforce the concepts of balance blending and phrasing. The dynamic shapes used in this piece provide an ebb and flow while the many suspensions create tension and release. The "maestoso" section should be half the original tempo creating a bold and dramatic statement.
Composed in 2013.
Second Printing, August 2023.
