Overture On A Hymn Tune Composed by Johnnie Vinson. For Concert Band. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 04003197, UPC: 884088659523)

Overture on a Hymn Tune is based on “The Old Ship Of Zion” which is found in the Early American Sacred Harp songbook. Johnnie Vinson uses a fast-slow-fast overture format to give this wonderful melody an appealing setting with plenty of variety and musicality. The slow middle section is a rhapsodic treatment of the main melody, while the two fast segments offer appealing and upbeat settings sure to be enjoyed by all. Skillfully scored to sound full with inexperienced players. Dur: 3:30
