Voluntary    Praeludium    Zoltán Kodály (1882-1967)

Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály believed that everyone is capable and has a right to musical literacy. Music, after all, belongs to everyone. By 1929 he was determined to reform the teaching of music and to make it an integral part of education. Music education should begin with very young children all of whom can be taught musical concepts. “Let us take our children seriously! Everything else follows from this…only the best is good enough for a child.” Kodály became internationally known for his approach to music education, which became the widely taught Kodály Method.

Text: Robert Lowry (1826-1899)
Cleveland Williams, soloist

Shall we gather by the river,
Where bright angel’s feet have trod,
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?

Refrain Yes, we’ll gather by the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river,
Gather with the saints by the river
That flows by the throne of God.

Ere we reach the shining river
Lay we every burden down,
Praise our spirits will deliver
And provide our robe and crown.  Refrain

Soon we’ll reach the shining river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease,
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.  Refrain
