Part of an exciting new series entitled ’’Jazz it up’’, aimed at younger instrumentalists who wish to explore the jazz idiom; and are ready to improvise.

Unlike other jazz arrangements for beginners available on Sibelius, this series gets away from merely stating the melody, and incorporates a ’jazzed up’ melody line, and an additional opportunity for the soloist to improvise if wanted in the ad lib solo section.

Piano parts are intentionally easy and un-complicated.

Analysis of the traditional lyrics:

The song is apocalyptic, taking much of its imagery from the Book of Revelation, but excluding its more horrific depictions of the Last Judgment. The verses about the Sun and Moon refer to Solar and Lunar eclipses; the trumpet (of the Archangel Gabriel) is the way in which the Final Judgement is announced. As the hymn expresses the wish to go to Heaven, picturing the saints going in (through the Pearly Gates), it is entirely appropriate for funerals.

Versions performed by Haley and others removes most religious imagery in favor of references to musicians.

Which method of viewing music should I use?
