Our Father, By Whose Name (Descant)

Organ Descant for Choir/Congregation
Chad Staten

English cathedral music often features a descant on the last verse of a hymn. The popular Welsh hymn tune “Rhosymedre” is the backdrop for this joyful descant. Find a second person to sit on the organ bench with you and give this a try. Because the harmony remains unchanged, there’s no need to warn the congregation beforehand.
