Sweetest Name (2003)

Festival Series 594 (publ. 2005)
Duration: approx. 4:00

This is a fun piece in the Big Band/Swing genre. It gives fresh treatment to two old songs.  They are:

There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in mine ear,
The sweetest name on earth.

O how I love the Saviour's name!
The sweetest name on earth.

Frederick Whitfield (1829-1904)
SA Songbook 69 (Tune: The Saviour's Name TB 139)

There's within my heart a melody,
Jesus whispers sweet and low:
Fear not, I am with thee; peace, be still
In all of life's ebb and flow.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.
Sweetest name I know,
Fills my every longing,
Keeps me singing as I go.

Luther Burgess Bridgers (1884-1948)
SA Songbook 390 (Tune: He keeps me singing TB 665)

This piece is a rare item - one of only a few that I have written for the fun of it, rather than being asked!  I hope you enjoy it.
