Program Notes

The famous Dutch hymn We Gather Together is scored for small bands with limited instrumentation, but will sound great with bands of all sizes. Dedicated to the frontline responders and essential workers who keep us safe, this is the perfect “welcome back” piece for both the band and your returning audience.

- Program Note by publisher


We Gather Together is a Christian hymn of Dutch origin written in 1597 by Adrianus Valerius as Wilt heden nu treden to celebrate the Dutch victory over Spanish forces in the Battle of Turnhout. It was originally set to a Dutch folk tune. In the United States, it is popularly associated with Thanksgiving Day and is often sung at family meals and at religious services on that day.

Performance Notes

This beautiful arrangement includes optional vocal parts for performers and/or audience. Piano, bass, guitar and percussion can strengthen your sound as well.

There are no rules for part assignment. Cover the parts with your strongest players first and then try to build woodwind and brass choirs within the ensemble. As conductor, you create a unique sound using the strengths of tour instrumentation and by following the suggested interplay between sections. Piano bass, guitar and percussion can fill some of the missing holes in the band.
