On A Hymnsong of Philip Bliss

Horn and Bassoon duet

On a Hymnsong of Philip Bliss has the most depressing story line for a musical piece that I have found so far. If you are looking for a beautifully difficult piece to play, I highly recommend Hymnsong.

If you really want to get into this piece, I would recommend reading the story behind the song and then listen to it again. I promise that it will change your outlook on it
