Ideas for use
Peter Harding, an StF+ user, has observed that ths text “really sparkles to StF tune 108″ – David Lee’s “In the beginning”, set to Andrew Pratt’s hymn In the beginning God played with the planets. It offers a wholly different feel to the words, with its syncopated rhythms and high energy level.
