With a wide dynamic range, Holy (Lord Almighty) is one of those epic arrangements that can stand alone as a call to worship or in the special music / offertory spot right before the sermon.

The arrangement turns the traditional lyrics and melody for Holy, Holy, Holy into modern worship with an newly composed bridge. As with most of my arrangements lately I’m following this formula: instead of composing a new, wordy chorus for hymns I’m creating a bridge that’s simple, singable and easily learned on your congregation’s first hearing. This bridge is usually echoed instrumentally in the intros and midtros.

Holy (Lord Almighty) starts off reverently with a male worship leader, increases intensity on verses two and three with an added female background vocalist, then the bridge drops again with the female background vocalist taking the lead.

As the bridge builds the male vocalist takes the background position, and finally in the big final verse the male vocalist takes the lead once again.

I’ve recorded it in D major but it’ll also work well in C.
