La Grâce is from Telemann’s Marches Héroiques “Heldenmusick” published in 1728. The lyrical melody is carried in the treble throughout, supported by chords in the mid-voices and a gently-malleted bass pedal line. There are a few dynamics throughout which fit the musical line perfectly. It is available in both a 3-4 octave version and a separate 5 or 7-1/2 octave version which includes the optional G1, A1 and B1. It is marked at q=76 but it is a ‘march,’ albeit a gentle one, and will also flow along nicely at a faster tempo if you choose. The recording omitted two repeats which are included in both scores. The demo recording is of the 5-octave version.

This is a lovely work that is accessible by a solid Level 2 group. The two scores are fully compatible for massed ringing.
