This arrangement of the famous hymn by Charles Wesley is presented as a theme and variations, with various parts carrying the melody at different times. The arrangement was written for Dem Bones trombone ensemble in Mississippi.
This arrangement is written to a moderate grade III level of difficulty, with the first part ranging up to the Bb above the staff, and the second part goes as high as the Ab above the staff when it has the melody. As with most trombone ensemble music in this series, the fourth part is written for Bass Trombone, requiring at least an F attachment to enable the player to play the Eb, the D, and the C below the staff.
