Product Description

Dan Pinkston has arranged a contemplative contemporary setting for William H. Doane's hymn tune "Rescue." This famous missionary hymn is very familiar, and this setting enhances the rather simple tune.

Dan Pinkston teaches composition at Simpson College in Redding, California, and is an accomplished clarinetist. He has arranged many hymn tunes in his bright, contemporary style. He makes use of unusual harmonies and shifting rhythms to capture the beauty of this basic late-nineteenth century revival song.
