Higher Ground

Higher Ground

Series: Shawnee Press Publisher: Shawnee Press Score & Parts Composers: Johnson Oatman, Jr., Michael Hurley

Many of the old hymns have great, sometimes stunning messages. Michael Hurley feels that sometimes the “antiquated” melody and/or harmony can get in the way of these important words. He has embarked upon an ongoing project to create fresh, new music for these grand expressions of faith. He has definitely accomplished that with this arrangement! Higher Ground is lively and upbeat with exciting harmonies and catchy syncopation. “Pressing on the upward way” is no problem with this uplifting choral. The melody soars as the mood of the text climbs higher, adding a great high soprano descant on the final verse, “I want to scale the utmost height and catch a gleam of glory bright!” A wonderful orchestration or accompaniment CD is available, taking this spirited octavo to new heights...to Higher Ground!
