Praise to the Man

Joseph_Smith,_Jr._portrait_owned_by_Joseph_Smith_III

Today marks 208 years since Joseph Smith Junior was born, and so today I have a unique arrangement of “Praise to the Man” that brings together, the original, rather gloomy setting, the upbeat “Scotland the Brave” setting now in the hymnbook, and another hymn most know as “Lord, Dismiss Us With Thy Blessing”.  I wanted to portray a wide variety of emotions, such as the early Saints must have felt when hearing about the death of the prophet: grief at his passing, gratitude for his mission, and joy in his memory.
