    Repton (Dear Lord & Father) - singable versions

    Hi there

    I need a version of Repton that can be sung to by a congregation. The Eric Banks and Gavin Somerset versions change key half way through which makes them unsuitable. Peter Graham's version stays in the same key - is anyone familiar with this arrangement, is it suitable for singing along to? Or does anyone know of any other singable versions?

    Thanks

    You could see if your local SA band has any old tune books the tune is in there?

    Why not just repeat the first verse in the Eric Banks version?

    I've done a transcription straight from a hymn book if that's any help.

    There's an arrangement for brass band and voice by Alun Cook on Score Exchange. Price is US$6: roughly 3.7. You can preview the score and parts and listen to an MP3 rendering.

    Its in the new SA Tune book too. These are available from SP&S but a full set is quite expensive (But you do get a lot of tunes.

    The PG version was done for Songs of Praise (i think), so would have thought it'd be fine.
