American Hymn Tune Sketches Composed by John Prescott. For Concert Band. Published by Wingert-Jones Music Publications. (Catalog # 3014171, UPC: 822424016746)

Two classic hymns, How Firm a Foundation and Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing, are expertly woven together into this mature-sounding work of serenity, power and reverence. Each tune receives its own unique treatment, employing all the colors and timbres of the band, from quiet, solemn solos to great organ-like choirs of sound. The conclusion is a wonderfully expressive blend of both hymns and exuberant rhythms in a truly inspiring finale. (6:09)
