Program Notes by Sinae Kim:
“God's Great Grace It Is Has Brought Us” is a famous Korean hymn tune. The song's text explains grace and joy, and the beautiful melody is from a Korean atmosphere. Each variation expresses a distinct character, and the final variation uses a traditional Korean rhythmic pattern called Jang-Dan, which usually begins slowly and then gradually speeds up. The use of Jang-Dan helps the musicians perform this piece with energy and excitement.
