Come, You Thankful People, Come is a spirited setting of the familiar hymntune, ST. GEORGE‚?TS WINDSOR, calling for mart, mart-lift, ring-touch and shake techniques, and making extensive use of mallets.¬†The straightforward first stanza is in the usual and expected 4/4 meter, interspersed with an occasional 2/4 measure along the way.¬† The second stanza moves into 3/4, with a recurring cross-accent pattern, producing the effect of playing in 6/8.¬† After modulating from F to E-flat, the third and final stanza returns to the original meter, bringing the piece to a decisive and joyful ff conclusion!
