    Hi Greg,

    Are you looking for a recital-type setting of that hymn? Gosh, I don't know of one. Our highly esteemed forum member "Giwro" might be able to help. Our forum moderator "Krummhorn" is a wellspring of info - He might know of a publishing house that may carry what you seek.

    Cheers,

    variation

    Hi
    If you have a score of 'softly and tenderly Jesus is calling' and if you can send it to me, may be I can write a variation for you (for free). But this week I'll be very busy.

    What a genuine offer, Jean-Paul ...
    The common hymntune is "Thompson" (meter: 11 7 11 7 and refrain) - Music composed by Will L. Thompson (1847-1909) and should be in most church hymnals.

    Hi JP, I will be very thankful if you can assist... Unfortunately our scanner at the office can no longer scan -some IP address conflict... I have tried to save a copy as NWC but it failed... I am including the internet site address. I hope it will work. http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/s/o/softlyat.htm

    Once again all I can say is "THANK YOU, THANK YOU and THANK YOU.

    I am looking forward to play your variation in church.

    "A THANK YOU IS THE KEY TO THE HEART OF THE BENEFACTOR"

    Yours in appreciation

    Variation is ready

    Hi Greg

    The first variation is ready.
    You can finf it : PDF and MP3 (with virtual Cavaillé-Coll and Sir reverb) at :


    Now I will have a look to your PDF and if I have some time write a second variation.

    This first variation is for a single manual organ and is very easy to play as I do not know if you can play piece more difficult. First passage is only montre 8' and flute 8'. Second passage, flute 4' is added.

    If one day you can play and record one of my musics, I'll be happy to receive a MP3 performed on a true organ.

    Hi JP,
    I downloaded the pdf attachment and could not get the mp3... I am looking to play it at home tonight. I really appreciate you writing a variation for me... Unfortunately we only have a electronic organ at church.... i will have to visit one of our other congregations to make a recording for you...

    Once again, THANK YOU, DANKIE

    Greg

    Very nice arrangement, J-Paul - Just played it through on my piano at home, and now anxious to play it at church on Thursday afternoon when I do my normal weekly practicing. I'll take along my Zoom H4 and see and try recording it.

    I'm totally impressed with the speed that you are able to churn these out with. And in what appears to be a "single take" from your thoughts to the engraved score. Couple this with never having seen, nor perhaps even heard, this hymntune before. Very impressive J-Paul ... very impressive, indeed.

    I'm going to have a busier than usual practice session on Thursday.

    For my taste of preference for keys, I like the A flat version for organ solo ... for congregational singing we try to keep the top line out of the stratsophere.
