He already had released the parts and the versification (except for a few changes in the third verse, which he released to the public domain in 2007) to the public domain in 2006.
  • SSAATTBB arrangement of What Wondrous Love Is This (based on Connie Dover's)—using the tune Wondrous Love
    • PDF
    • MIDI
    • LilyPond
    • License: This work is based (albeit somewhat loosely) on Connie Dover's rendition of Wondrous Love. It should be fine to use this for personal, non-commercial use. Permission was granted for the contributer to post it here. For any other uses (except for the things mentioned in the sub-bullet to this), please first obtain permission from Connie Dover. Mark Hamilton Dewey wrote the parts and adapted the lyrics from several versions (including Connie Dover's); he also wrote the third verse (though it is meant to be a re-write of a popular public domain verse). Verses 1, 5, 6 and 8 are based on Connie Dover's arrangement of those lyrics. Also, the note durations of the melody are based upon Connie Dover's arrangement (although the durations in her arrangement vary slightly from verse to verse, and this arrangement only uses one of those variations).
      • The lyrics—except for those of verses 1, 5, 6 and 8—may be treated as if they were public domain. The parts written (not including the duration changes made by Connie Dover) may also be treated as if they were public domain.
