“Nyland” (Finnish folk tune)
(A piece for any size string orchestra)
DESCRIPTION: A tender and expressive arrangement of the Finnish folktune “Nyland,” which is also the melody for the hymn “In Heavenly Love Abiding”
AUDIENCE: This piece is equally suitable in a concert or church setting (and makes a lovely offertory).
SOUND CLIP (Note: This was recorded in a church service during the offertory, so it's rather noisy in places.)
SCORING: Strings of at least 3, 3, 2, 1, 1, but the more the better
