This is My Fathers World
This is My Father’s World is truly a fresh take on an old hymn tune. This late intermediate to advancing arrangement contains beautiful juxtapositions of old and new harmonies and meters. The subtle shifts in these can bring a new spiritual experience to the listener and performer. Your interest is piqued in the first three measures of 5/4 meter, but shifts quickly to something soothing and calm. Throughout the piece, there is just enough of something new to cause those old words to come to your mind in a fresh way.
The Cover Design for This is My Father’s World
The cover of This is My Father’s World was created by an artist who spent hours understanding the spirit of this piece before using a unique visual effect to create a sunny cover. Does the cover appear to glow to you? Is the center of the sun a different color than the outside of the shape? These subtle effects are the kind of thing that make you stop and look just one more time in the same way the music makes you stop and think of the words just one more time.
This is the first piece in series of new-fashioned hymn arrangements. You can read more about their creation and artwork. Enjoy!
