Song background:

I've probably been hanging onto this one for too long. Corona put a stop to the debut of this arrangement, but I'm hoping we'll get back to it someday soon. I've been playing around lately with new melodies to lyrics that are tried and true.  At the same time, the original melody is so familiar (and beautiful) that I felt I couldn't entirely abandon it, thus the interlude was written to recall that familiarity. Some ideas are a struggle to get formed, but somehow this melody hit me very quickly and was pretty much completed in one mornings session - interestingly enough after a very gut wrenching and somewhat difficult prayer due to personal struggles. But that's why we do it, isn't it? Some times those lowest of low moments when we feel like were not even worthy and don't belong anywhere near God are just the times when reaching out is just what our souls need. Hope you all enjoy this arrangement. 

UPDATE 5-12-2020 For anyone reviewing this piece and would like to join I am getting a virtual choir together to sing it - instructions are on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/mike.bailey.9674227 -will be posting the conductors track soon.
