Song background:

This ethereal new setting of Folliot Pierpoint’s standard hymn For the Beauty of the Earth features a new melody and stunning modern harmonies.  During the second verse, the familiar tune by Conrad Kocher is repurposed in the bass line.


Ideally, this piece would be sung a cappella; however, a piano or organ may easily double the choral parts if necessary.  Divisi in the Soprano and Bass parts are written, but the small notes can be omitted to maintain only four-part harmony throughout.

This piece was written in honor of Martin Prachař.  Martin works hard to make good choral arrangements available in the Czech language.  He also has a great ear for sound, and he creates some fantastic digital instrumental recordings for demonstration and practice purposes.  See his work at  Texty česky.
