The low, steady beat of the double bass provides the foundation for the stately melody that begins this exciting Palm Sunday story. Gradually, other orchestral instruments enter into Jerusalem. By the chorus, voices are singing in full 4-part harmony, “Hosanna we sing!” supported by all the colors of the orchestra. With a declamatory text by John Parker filled with hope and redemption, this anthem features easily learned parts, syncopated rhythms and a dynamic piano part…a celebrative way to begin Holy Week.
