Dignified and refined, this arrangement of the hymn tune, TOKYO, provides the musical setting for a Pentecost text written by Mary Nelson Keithahn. Use of whole tone scales and optional percussion instruments highlight the distinctive Japanese melody that has always been considered 'sacred' music in Japan.
Voicing: Unison/two part with piano, congregation, and optional flute, handbells (3-4 octaves), suspended cymbal, gong, triangle, and wind chimes
Composer: John Horman
