About Crusaders Variations
"Crusaders Hymn" is one of the best known and most loved hymn tunes in the world. It is a folk tune of unknown origin having nothing to do with religion and was first published in 1842. The editor reports hearing it being sung by haymakers in Silesia (now a section of southern Poland). This arrangement consists of a statement of the theme with some individuality of parts, followed by two short variations, first in a Viennese waltz style, and culminating in a march style in 3/4 meter somewhat resembling a polonaise. Range is quite limited from Eb above the staff down to Ab bottom space making this an excellent choice for developing players. It is in the key of E-flat major all through. Parts are well marked for style, articulation, dynamics and phrasing to aid in playing it musically.
