Description

As one of the most famous Christian hymns around the world, Chad Floyd transforms Jesus Loves Me into a beautiful new vibraphone arrangement that will be effective regardless of whether the setting is sacred or secular. The sweetness of the original melody is decorated by contemporary harmonies and idiomatic vibraphone techniques.

Mallet dampening and a variety of arpeggio permutations make this a great study piece for developing the dexterity necessary for vibraphone proficiency. This arrangement would be a crowd-pleasing, accessible feature for recitals, church services, lessons, and even coffee shop performances!

Jesus Loves Me is professionally printed and shipped as a bound folio.

Instrumentation

  • Vibraphone

Reviews

Even though this simple hymn melody has likely been arranged thousands of times for many different instruments, this arrangement for vibes is worth considering if you are looking for a nicely done arrangement suitable for playing in church or in a recital

This four-minute arrangement begins with a homophonic presentation of the melody, punctuated by short flourishes. Soon the melody proper is stated over a sixteenth-note accompaniment. Notes are allowed to ring together, creating pleasing sonorities that seem to float. This moves to a more homophonic presentation of the second part of the melody with fairly conventional harmonies. A transition based on the earlier sixteenth-note pattern moves to the development section of the piece that is more syncopated. Sixteenth-note triplets come into play here, adding to the intensity. The piece concludes with a restatement of the melody over the sixteenth-note accompaniment pattern from the beginning.

This well-crafted arrangement would be an excellent choice for an intermediate/advanced vibe player. Anyone familiar with the tune will enjoy what Chad Floyd has done with it.
