Communion Hymn Buy Sheet Music More Details View Lyrics Listen to Sample

This popular hymn by O'Connor-Morris is given a soothing contemporary accompaniment by Newman. It's easy for the soloist because it's familiar, moderate difficulty for the accompanist. In verse 4, the melody is a delightful descant, but you could replace the notes with the original hymn melody. Music: G. O'Connor-Morris, arranged by Philip E. Newman.

Hymn format, contemporary in style. Easy to sing and play. As well as being a good, simple solo for a less experienced singer or accompanist, you could also use this as an alternate hymn for the congregation. Very singable.

BIOGRAPHY

Philip E. Newman was a graduate of Pomona College in Claremont and earned teaching credentials from San Francisco State College. He did graduate work at the New England Conservatory of Music where he earned bachelor's and master’s degrees and received a doctorate from the University of Iowa. He taught at the New England Conservatory, Northeastern University, Principia College, and the University of Iowa. He was also chief music critic for the Alton Evening Telegraph from 1956 to 1958.

A gifted organist, many of Dr. Newman’s solos were written for organ and voice with a separate staff for the organ pedal. Others represent his abilities as a pianist. His compositions are rich with harmonic variety. He often used the key of C as a blank palette on which to paint various harmonic textures through the extensive use of accidentals.

Anabel P. Newman has graciously given SLVivace permission to represent the solos of Philip E. Newman.
