DARWALL, funky fresh intro

Just a quick post from yesterday’s service, featuring the inimitable¬†Joyful Noise Orchestra. If you are not familiar with JNO, it’s an ensemble (collective? flash mob? uprising?) of musicians that span from age 12 to 72, from beginner to pro. We lead worship every few months at Church of the Servant, and when we do I try to write something special to show them off. This time it was a contrapuntal introduction to the hymn tune DARWALL, which you may know as “Rejoice the Lord Is King.” (We sang it with the text “Join All the Glorious Names.”) If you want to verify that we were mostly playing the right notes, you can take a look at the score:¬†PDF. If you want to verify that JNO is the best looking band in the business, check out this picture from Thanksgiving 2014.
