Hi ya'll,

I am looking for the whistle part of In Christ Alone. I can pick it out by ear, but it's really hard for me as I am a sheet music player more than a by the ear player. My Worship team at church sings it, however, in a different key. So not only do I have to find the score but I have to then transpose it into the key that they sing. I used my cell phone to audio record the song when we sung it so I have that to work off of.

Any help would be great!
Thanks,
Pete

Whose version are you using? I can think of two or three different folks who have this recording out right off the bat.

Howdy Pete,

In what key would you like it?

Key of C starting with a G as the first note is how the Church Worship Team does it.

I am talking about the version on the Left Behind Worship CD performed by Geoff Moore and Adrienne Liesching.

Sorry I forgot to stipulate that...pretty important detail.

ooooo I haven't heard that one.. mmmm Geoff Moore.... must get this recording!!

In my opinion, that version is the best!

Here's a simple version of the whistle part. You should add ornamentation wherever you like - it really adds more emotion to the part.

The asterisk on the top line is where you can insert an optional fill for the rest of that measure - written out below. You can see where it goes back up to the rest of the solo.

Now, the whistle part DOES have variations throughout the song but I didn't chart any of them out. The possibilities are too many. Just start with this and ask the Holy Spirit to enable you to improvise a little as you practice, and see what happens!

Let us know how it goes,
Kitty

THANKS! I knew that someone here would be able to help out. I'll work on it and hopefully the Worship Leader lets me jump in.

Yeah, if some of you have not heard this version, you MUST!

Oh, this is great!! I heard this once on the radio, then never again. I've wanted to use it in the worst way. Thanks!!!!!!!!

The recording mentioned is in D. I have a copy if anyone would like to hear a sample. PM me your email address.

And by the way, whistlen, I can put the recording in the key of C if you'd like something to practice along with. Sounds a little weird but good enough for learning.

the above transcription is in D or C kitty? given no key signature I am presuming C?

Author:  KittyR [ Mon Jan 15, 2007 10:53 pm ]
Post subject: 

Yup.

don't suppose you could do a quick transpose to D? I don;t have finale or any of my sheet music editing software up and running on this machine yet :)

Thanks Kitty, I got it!

Now to practice.......

[sigh] You kids are so demanding... :roll:

I couldn't help putting at least ONE ornamentation in this one. :)

Whistlen, after playing it, I decided I like straight eighth notes better on the first measure of the 2nd line rather than dotted-eighth-sixteenth.

EMERGENCY!!!!

I need a midi of this song as I can't find it anywhere!

Does anyone have the WHOLE song? Any Key is fine as I'll plug it into Noteworthy and transpose it to where I need it.


THANKS!

Pete
...just a WHISTLEN!

Newbie to the forum here. Been playing for a while and recently started to play praise music on the Irish whistle to add a little variety to my guitar playing.

I realize this is a relatively old topic, but does anyone know what key whistle is used on the version performed by Geoff Moore and Adrienne Liesching? From previous replies I'm assuming it's a "D", but want to make sure. It also sounds like there are two whistles in part of it. One sounds a bit lower. Any thoughts on that?

Thanks,
Brian

Wow .. sorry it took so long Brian, but glad I finally saw your post. Welcome!

Hiya Brian,

Welcome to the gang.

You're correct; there is a harmony whistle in addition to the main whistle theme on the Moore/Liesching version in many places. But what praise team is lucky enough to have TWO whistle players? :)

Ahh, reviving an old thread is always fun. Well it's been a while since I had asked asked my question, and to answer KittyR's question: "But what praise team is lucky enough to have TWO whistle players?"- OUR praise team is lucky enough to have two players and last Sunday we did "In Christ Alone". We had a lot of fun with it and it turned out great. From the comments afterwards, the congregations enjoyed it also. We plan to do more "Celtic themed" hymns in the future.

On another note (no pun intended) did anyone else have the opportunity to see the Gettys in Kansas City back in July? They performed and did a workshop at the National Worship Leaders Conference. Great stuff!!

They were in KC? I'm just 5 hours away! DOH! #-o

Welcome aboard (or is that Welcome Abroad?). Is there any tune you'd like to suggest for the September Challenge? If so, I'll try to get a lead sheet on for it. 8)

Slainte,
Jim

Yep, and they did (I think) just about every song from their latest CD "Awaken the Dawn" and a few from "In Christ Alone". Not sure if he is their regular "piper" but they had a guy playing assorted whistles and a Uilleann pipe that was beyond description and a gal that was an excellent fiddle player. The next day Keith did a workshop on "Writing Today's Modern Hymns" that was quite inspirational. Oh well, I am getting all rev'd up again, I gotta go play something.

Sláinte is táinte,
Brian
