Musical Suggestion

For Piano Only Accompaniment:
Accompaniment pattern:
  • The pattern provided at the bottom of the page works well on the piano or keyboard, but a word of caution—do not go too fast! Remember that in Part 3 the singers will be singing 32nd notes. Begin with a very steady beat, feeling the 16th note pulse. The staccatos keep it from plodding or feeling too slow.
  • Feel free to begin to improvise with these chords as this pattern is repeated. The important thing is to keep the chord on a steady beat, but change octaves or fill in as you desire. When the 3 parts are being sung together (layered), it will be especially important to keep a strong, solid beat clear for the voices to hear.

Author and Composer Information

A. Jeffrey LaValley has been the Director of Music at New Jerusalem Baptist Church since 1972. He started playing piano by ear at age five, after attending his sister’s piano lessons. After losing a composition job due to not being able to notate music, he attended the school of music at Mott College, and at age 34, could finally read music. In 1987 he was given the opportunity to compose a song for the visit of the Pope to the Silverdome. His true heart is for the local church, as well as the flourishing of the city of Flint, Michigan, in which he lives.
— Laura de Jong
