O God our help in ages past

Mack Wilberg
Vocal score
In stock


Wilberg arranged this familiar hymn for the funeral of US President Gerald Ford. To distinguish this arrangement from the other known settings of O God our help in ages past, Wilberg chose a much lower key for a warmer, more comforting sound. Also, in the last verse, the melody is passed to the tenors and altos, which allows the outer voices to develop and further broaden the texture. Whether performing this work with piano accompaniment or with orchestra, it will certainly rejuvenate this traditional favorite.
