An unusual arrangement of hymn #116 Come Follow Me, from the 1985 edition of the hymn book of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
This arrangement was inspired by a beautiful sacred choral work by Dr. Joni Jensen Director of Choral Activities and Professor of Voice at Texas Woman’s University (Denton, TX), titled “Come After Me”. I experienced the great blessing of being able to perform her work with Millennial Choirs and Orchestras several years ago. As we rehearsed it, I kept hearing the tune and words of Come Follow Me, which made staying focused on the rehearsal very difficult. Later I decided that the beautiful style of Dr. Jensen’s work triggered my own need to express a similar sentiment. While this doesn’t hold a candle to Dr. Jensen’s work it is something that touches my heart.
Arranged for SATB choir and piano accompaniment.
