Old Rugged Cross - String Quartet

This setting of George Bernard's Classic Hymn, "Old Rugged Cross," for String quartet takes a completely new approach harmonically in this arrangement. While the famous melody in the 1st Violin has a few added embellishments, the rest of the ensemble joins with tighter jazz-influenced harmony.

A reflective approach to this piece of music would be extremely rewarding in a worship setting when used either as an offertory or as a lead-in to a music set. While none of the individual parts are particularly challenging, it will still be an exercise in balanced small ensemble playing.
