The arranger pays homage to the bold, sometimes primitive psalm-setting style of colonial
America.
"Fugueing" was a popular musical device of the period, wherein a "Fugueing Tune" is traded back
and forth among the voice parts, forming a texture similar to the more sophiticated fugues of
European contemporaries Bach, Handel, and Mozart. The best known composer of this style was
William Billings (1746-1800). The second section of this arrangement uses the folk hymn tune
HOLY MANNA (anon), and imitates the opening of a traditional fugue, but uses the quainter
harmonic language of fugeing.
