Extreme range - most voices won't reach it
September 25, 2014
I don't think many people could use this as a solo - the range is the extreme limits of BOTH ends of my ability. I can JUST hit the bottom note (the beginning note is the lowest in the the song) and I think it's the same note as the highest one in the song, if I recall correctly ... exactly 2 full octaves (plus one, really) by the time you are in the final chorus.
For some reason, it's stepped up not once, but TWICE, and not gently, either. Yes, yes, I know it's more 'artistically interesting" to change keys, but this is a bit much, to me, because the song already has a lot of range, and to step it up twice, so sharply, is just too much for such a sweet simple song. .. for most people to use. I love it so much, though. and I think the background is beautiful and the flute sounds lovely (And I play BOTH flute and keyboard, and I didn't even notice one way or another about the flute). I'm going to sing it anyhow, as a female/male duet or even trio. .as it's done on the recording. If I feel uncertain about the top notes that day, there's plenty of harmony notes I could fall back on instead.
The other singer has a strong beautiful tenor, but he, too, considered the bottom part a bit low, and the other 2 verses too high. The final note of the song is SUCH a MARVELOUS worshipful harmony if done correctly, with all voices hitting it evenly - I don't know how to explain it, but it's the sort of note that you just have to "team" on, if you know what I mean. . I don't know how to describe it..
I love this song. It is one of my favorites. The words are so meaningful. The soundtrack is very good. I kind of expected it to be exactly like Selah's version, but it is a little different (the main thing I noticed was the sound of the whistle at the beginning didn't quite sound like an actual whistle, perhaps done on a keyboard, though it still sounds good) All in all this is a great product. I am so thankful I found this soundtrack!
This is a great CD to use in my car. The only problem is that it won't play in my laptop, so I cannot practice singing the song in my home; I have to wait until I'm in the car to practice. Luckily, I commute 30 miles one way to work every day, so I'm in my car a lot! Other than that, it's a great song and a good quality CD.
