Now Thank We All Our God (Chuck Bell Arrangement)
Tune: NUN DANKET, by Johann Crüger, 1647
Contemporary adaptation and arrangement by Chuck Bell, with additional words by Marcia McFee, 2012
Contemporary musician and composer extraordinaire Chuck Bell has given amazing new life to this 365-year-old hymn (United Methodist Hymnal no. 102). He has provided a full melody and lyrics version with full keyboard accompaniment, and two chord and lyrics sheets in D and Eb for guitar players in the band. He has also recorded an MP3 sound file complete with vocal and accompaniment. Sing it as a solo, with the praise team or choir, but especially with the congregation.
Chuck Bell is a gifted composer, arranger, performer and music director from the Atlanta, Georgia, area. He most recently arranged and led the music for the 2012 General Conference of The United Methodist Church held in Tampa, Florida.
