Alleluia (Counterpoint to hymn #81)

About the Song

This is a simple melody, sung on one word–“Alleluia”–throughout. The melody stays between c’ and d”.

It is written as a counterpoint to “Press Forward, Saints,” #81 in the 1985 LDS hymnal. The music is printed on a half-sheet so it will slip inside your hymnbook. I suggest using it with the last verse only.

    I love your music!! Thank you!

    I have a question regarding the counterpoint melody for “Press Forward Saints”. I’m wondering who sings the counterpoint (Altos? A soloist? etc.) and what the remainder of the choir sings. Should they all sing the melody in unison, or will they be singing SATB?

    Thank you for your response and for your generosity in sharing your beautiful arrangements.

      Diane, the counterpoint can be sung by a soloist or a section. The choir can sing the parts or unison. The counterpoint could also be done by an instrument. It’s made to be pretty versatile.
