FAITHFUL is an adaptation of a tune from Johann S. Bach's (PHH 7) well-known aria "Mein gläubiges Herze" ("My heart ever faithful"), found in his Cantata 68. The tune's title is derived from the English translation of the aria's opening words.
A charming tune, FAITHFUL consists of repetitions and variations of just a few motives. Sing in unison with light accompaniment.
