I had some composing time this morning to work on music for a new album. An idea that had been circling in my head was to create a unique arrangement based on the melody known as the Doxology. It’s the one that goes “Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.” I knew the music was old, but I didn’t remember that it originated 460 years ago in 1551. Wow. It was amazing to think of what has happened in music since 1551, such as the invention of the piano by Bartolomeo Cristofori in Italy around 1700. I think I’m going to call the new arrangement “Blessings Flow.”
