HMC-918, SATB, $3.75
Date released: 1987
A dramatic praise anthem based on a psalm text. Originally commissioned by a public high school choir for contest, this anthem works well in educational and church programs. The piano accompaniment is challenging but worth the effort. This piece features Mark Hayes trademarks: engaging, rhythmic passages, a singable contrapuntal section, and a thrilling “bring them to their feet” ending; a perfect number with which to end your concert.
