Howard Helvey, known for choral arrangements with robust and exciting 4-hands piano, has a compilation of five American folk hymns entitled Saints Bound for Heaven*. “On Jordan’s Stormy Banks” features subtle yet effective changes of key to accentuate the general intensifying of the piece. The other pieces in this collection are “Behold, the Best, the Greatest Gift,” “Cross of Jesus, Cross of Sorrow,” “Saints Bound for Heaven,” and “There Is a Fountain.” They are all worth a listen.
