Joseph Swain�s beautiful hymn �O Thou In Whose Presence� was very popular in early nineteenth century America, especially at revivals and camp-meetings. The tune most often associated with Swain�s text at this time was Davis, a hauntingly beautiful melody first recorded by John Wyeth in his Repository of Sacred Music, Part Second, in 1813. This melody has all the elements of a folk tune and was undoubtedly written down from local tradition, as were many other tunes in Wyeth's collection. William W. Phelps, an early Mormon convert, included his adaption of Swain�s text in the first Mormon hymnal, published in 1835. The text of my arrangement is taken from this 1835 hymnal, and the music is based on the three part setting (soprano [treble], tenor, bass) published by Wyeth, to which I have added a simple alto part. Also, in Wyeth�s version the melody is assigned to the tenors and a high harmony part to the sopranos (trebles). I've switched these in this arrangement. I hope you enjoy it. Please let me know what you think.
