On V.I. avoiding work.
The genesis of this hymn started with a simple statement from my best friend complaining about the simplicity of contemporary Christian music’s lyrics and chords. I told him if I ever wrote a hymn I would try my best to put more meat in the words especially. The following week I was contacted by a client and dear friend who is absolutely one of the greatest trombone players in the world telling me that I should write a piece for the unexpected transformation of 2020 concerning what the world is going through at this time, so I decided to write a hymn. One of my organist friends also recommended b minor so if he wanted to commission me to arrange it for organ and strings the key would already work very well. Thus this hymn was born. I decided to simply render the demo with strings for simplicity sake and did not use double basses due to the range of the human voice. Thank you for taking a look and listen.
