Tune Information

Composer: Norm Jonkman (1984)
Meter: R with alleluias
Key: F Major
Copyright: Tune © 1987, CRC Publications


The Psalter Hymnal Revision Committee announced a tune search for this text, and TRANSFIGURATION, composed by Norm Jonkman (PHH 200) in 1984, was chosen among several submitted. TRANSFIGURATION, moving between triple and duple meter has a rather rugged (mountainous) melodic contour and concludes with two rhythmically exciting "Alleluia" figures. Sing in unison, possibly with harmony on the "Alleluias," at which point the brighter organ stops should help to proclaim those "Alleluias." Reserve the most powerful reed or mixture for stanza 4 and build in a solid ritardando for the final "Alleluias." Congregations may need some encouragement with the tune at first, but they will find the extra effort worthwhile.
