It's been a while ago since I wrote this (last April, to be exactly) but I think it is time I post this.
A little background information about this lied I wrote. I was driving in my car, listening to some 'lieder' written by Mozart or so, and when I came home about half an hour later, when I parked my car, I had this tune in my head, including the text for 4 couplets. I started writing at about 10pm and finished it at 6am...
Although the text is quite depressing (Jesus, help me, I'm a sinner, I can't do it alone), I was not near suicidal when I wrote this (just saying...).
It is a 7-minute piece for church organ, trumpet, and SATB choir. It countains four couplets (the last one has a different melody, btw) and a solopart (accompanied by the organ) for the trumpet. It ends with a big 'Amen', of course, for the song ends in confindence that help will be there when asked.
I know there are quite a lot dissonants in it. That is intentional... ;)
Just one more thing: I hope you guys and girls enjoy it.
