Beckenhorst, 2001

A prayer of devotion, to the tune more commonly known for its use with “Holy God, We Praise Thy Name”.

Interestingly, this was Dan’s first published piece with Beckenhorst Press (after several other rejections)- the piece that began the relationship which eventually led to Dan’s current position as assistant editor at Beckenhorst. Beckenhorst’s product description, written in 2001, reads “We welcome Dan Forrest to the catalog with this lovely hymn setting. His harmonic treatment is rich without obscuring the hymn tune and the accompaniment makes it clear that Mr. Forrest is an accomplished, sensitive pianist.” (Little did anyone know that eventually, Dan would be the primary accompanist for Beckenhorst’s demo recordings!)
