Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee and Nine Other Classical Hymns

Nothing that exists is more worthy of praise than God, so it follows that he is deserving of our best music. Unsurprisingly, many pieces by the greatest composers of all-time appear throughout our hymnals. Not all of these were Christians, though several were—Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frederic Handel, and Felix Mendelssohn, for instance. Saved or not, none of these composers would have been able to do what they did were it not for a special gift from God in the area of music. It’s only natural, then, that we should use their pieces when we’re praising God.
My approach to arranging these hymns has been varied. Some, I’ve tried to do in the composer’s style—May the Grace of Christ Our Savior; Rise, Crowned with Light; O Sacred Head, Now Wounded; and the Mozart ones (which aren’t quite as good, I’m afraid). In Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken, I didn’t bother to try to copy Haydn at all, as he already wrote his own piano variations on it—this one is in my style. Not Worthy, Lord, and Holy Ghost, with Light Divine, are more in my style. Still others are, I think, hybrids. I didn’t bother to try to copy Beethoven on Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee (how could any composer top what he did with it in the Ninth Symphony), but I think some of his influence slipped in on the third statement of the theme. While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night is probably more in Mozart or Beethoven’s style than Handel’s, as I was looking at their variations on other pieces when arranging it.
Now, there are far more than ten hymns by classical composers out there, but these are the ones I wound up picking for this edition. Whether you play classical music all the time, or whether you have little experience with it, I hope you enjoy these arrangements and that they bring God glory, as Bach always wrote at the end of his pieces. And if you like these, be sure to check out the other works of Beethoven, of Tchaikovsky, of Gottschalk—of any of these composers. After all, these men spent their whole lives writing music, and what you see here is only the tip of the iceberg. Enjoy!
