SSAB & Piano
Words by German Jesuits as Schönster Herr Jesu in the 17th Century
Music from Silesian folk song (Crusader’s Hymn) from Schlesische Volkslieder (1842)
Arranged by M Ryan Taylor
Though the text of this Hymn is not specific to the Easter season, I really like to program it at that time. Really, it is appropriate for any service of the year; it would even work beautifully for Christmas. This arrangement is an expanded version of the first draft of a commission by soprano, Andrea da Silva. I feel it ‘floats’ during the first half and then grows in intensity til the end.
Fair is the sunshine, Fair is the moonlight,
And all the stars in Heaven above;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
And brings to all the world His love.
Fair are the meadows, Fair are the woodlands,
Robed in the flowers of blooming spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,
He makes our sorrowing spirit sing.
Beautiful Savior, Lord of the nations,
Son of God and Son of Man!
Thee will I honor, praise and give glory!
Give praise and glory evermore!
