Driving rhythms and colorful harmonies abound in this lively, energetic setting of Psalm 98 by Mark Hayes. The opening verse is jubilant, with regular syncopation, as God’s people praise Him with melody, trumpets and horn. A key change signals the second verse, in which a flowing lyricism prevails as God’s creation bows in reverence before God. The opening verse returns in the original key and the excitement builds to a powerful finish through escalating modulations and antiphonal choral singing. A distinctive addition to any choral library for today’s worship!
