Suite – Chronicles of Faith

SUITE – CHRONICLES OF FAITH

(General Series, 2013)

Written for the 90th anniversary celebrations of the Royal Oak Citadel Corps, this suite utilizes a number of hymns and tunes used at the Corps within its history. The three prominently featured ones are “We’ll sing in the morning the songs of salvation,” “I’m in His hands,” and “We are standing on holy ground” with some references to “Be Still for the Presence of the Lord” and “Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus.” The three core tunes of this piece each tell a different story of faith, whether it be of God’s love (Movement 1), trusting that the future is in His control (Movement 2), and that many people have felt the presence of the Lord through the doors of the Royal Oak Citadel Corps over the past ninety years, and ultimately that no one place is considered “holy ground.” Holy ground is where the presence of the Lord is, who is the exact definition of holiness (Movement 3).
