    Descants for Hymns
Descriptions and Details ē
_______________________


PEL6000 DESCANT SERIES - Descants by Paul Halley have been arranged for many hymns, primarily from the Episcopal and Anglican Hymnals, so although descants translate well into all denominations' worship services, please check to make sure that the matching of text (the title) and hymn tune is what you're looking for.

Paul Halley is known for his gorgeous descant melodies, soaring lines, and great harmonic lifts. The descant on the last verse of the hymn is on the soprano line, with ATB in unison on the melody, and all harmonies, descant, and hymn tune written into the organ part. So, you may just want to play the organ accompaniment under your congregation's singing of the hymn, except that once your sopranos get hold of the descant they won't want to miss the fun and gloriousness of singing it!

Descants are now online as Digital Downloads (PDF) with a License to make 15 Reprints of the file - These downloads are priced at $10.00 per descant title. If you require more than 15 reprints of a particular title for your choir, please increase your order of the item in question to most closely match the number of reprint bundles you need (multiples of 15).  The first page of music comprises the first verses of the hymn as traditionally harmonized, with the Paul Halley descant and harmonization of the last verse in the subsequent pages of the file.

Shopping cart links are available below for those descants that are currently downloadable. Please be sure to save the licensed file to a safe location on your computer for retrieval at a convenient time, since the download links are only active for 24 hours and you will not be able to access the file on our website after the link expires.

If you don't see a title and shopping cart link for the descant you wish to order, please email us at info@pelagosmusic.com to alert us to the fact that your choice is the next descant we need to put online.

DESCANTS ARE FOR END-USERS ONLY - NO DEALER ORDERS, PLEASE.
