Brethren, We Have Met to Worship (Tune: Holy Manna)

(1 customer review)

An irish slip jig style makes this piano arrangement of Brethren We Have Met to Worship fun for the pianist and audience alike!


Brethren We Have Met to Worship (Holy Manna) is of the oldest published and loveliest American hymn tunes is now arranged in an Irish jig style! The fast moving, 6/8 meter is joyful and festive and then slows to a melancholy, contemporary setting. The jig style comes back in the end, leaving your audience with exuberance in worship!

Also known as Holy Manna, Christ is Risen, All Who Hunger, Gather Gladly, Singing Songs of Expectation, God Who Stretched the Spangled Heavens, God the Father of Your People, and God We Thank You for Our People. This piece is second in the Celtic Hymn Transformations series. See also Be Thou My Vision, another title in the Celtic Hymn Transformation.

    I played your two Celtic hymn arrangements at the church I serve as organist/pianist. The response to “Holy Manna” was especially exciting!
