The Reuter Organ Company commissioned John Weaver to compose a Hymn Sonata for his recital to formally open the organ at Shadyside Presbyterian Church on September 24, 1995. Weaver performed that work as the closing composition in his inaugural recital, dedicating it to Franklin Mitchell, then Chairman of the Reuter Organ Company. This is the final movement of the sonata, and combines the hymn tunes SINE NOMINE and SARUM, both of which are frequently associatiated with the hymn text "For All the Saints." Ingeniously, Weaver infused this mixture with a third melody from traditional Americana, "Oh, When the Saints Go Marchin' In." Incorporating that Dixieland rhythmic basis, this rich stew creates a New Orleans-style celebration for All Saints celebrations or recitals.
